Glad it made it safely
Trevor, it did. Yes I appreciate the thought that went into the humor.
On a more serious note. I have in the past received an engine with the fins broken on the top corner of the cylinder. The reason, handling in transit. The box was bruised, but not broken open. The sender did take the time to pack it in bubble wrap, as you did. But the weight of the motor work the bubble wrap around with it's weight. After that learning experience. Any motors I mail, I wrap the cylinders in a rag. Then wrap some tape around the ball. Disperses the shock of being tossed around on the dock. Just thought I would share, for all.
