It will fit in a Priority mail flat rate box, The 0-FRB2 size

I think U.P.S. would be the best option, but it has to boxed up properly. I ship out lots of stuff, but I've not had much experience with items such as a crankshaft.

Tom, make it easy on yourself. Flat rate USPS box or UPS. It will weigh 50 pounds or so boxed.

Oh, Chrankshaft. Why didn't you say so? UPS. Make the box to fit it tightly. I like to use fiberglass tape for heavy stuff like that. I buy the 2 in wide when I can find it.
