    Why don't you place the crank in a big plastic bag and then put it it box filled with liquid spray foam. Then wait unitl its dried and then fill it up again so it would be completly sealed in foam. just a thoght.

    You could take a piece of 1/2" plywood and screw a few pieces of 1x6 board onto it edgewise, to make a sort of cradle for the crank. One for each end and at least one in the middle of the crank. Cut a semicircle into the 1x6's for the crank journals and pad them with duct tape so the journals don't get scuffed. Bag the crank before placing it in this. Should only add a few pounds to ship weight.
