    Hello Everyone,
    I need to move a complete small block from Eastern Colorado to Central Minnesota. It is the Corvette 327 that Mudnutt and I took out of his 79 Blazer.
    Anyway, my question is what is the most cost effective way to get this engine from here to there. Has anyone every built a crate for anything like this if so how.
    Thankyou in advance.

    John

    If you have a local engine shop or somewhere that does machine work on engines, they should be able to give you an engine crate. then you will just need to wrap it with shrink wrap or whatever.

    if you are going to ship, give forward air a call. They told me to go from albany to MN that it was only $33 per 100 lbs for a 3'x3' crate.
    Hope this helps,
    Mike

    You call that dirty!?

    I second the <a target="_blank" href=http://www.forwardair.com>ForwardAir</a> recommendation. I have used them several times with no problems. Very reasonable prices and ship times.
