Home Depot and Lowes carry 18 gallon storage cotainers. Rubbermaid Roughneck brand containers seem to hold up the best. You will need one with the lid.

Step 2:

You will need a piece of light blue or pink foam board (a min. thickness of 1 1/2" ) for the bottom also sold at Home Depot or Lowes. It usually comes in 4x8 piece. You can use the other pieces for packing

                                                              around the engine. 

                                     If the foam is white do not use it.

Step 3:

Line the container with a large garbage bag and set engine inside.

Step 4:

Pack around the engine with painters paper (also sold at Home Depot or Lowes), or use the left over foam pieces.  Pack it very tight so the engine can't move at all.

Please put a letter with your name, return address and phone number inside the container. please do not forget your phone number.
