    Default Transporting a new build engine to dyno shop

    Lads, random question, but for your freshly built motors where you take them to a engine dyno centre, how do you transport them?? Or do dyno shops have stands you can mount in a trailer/ute?? Sorry random question!

    Just knock up a timber crate, dirty old bunnings pine has moved more engines that I can count.

    Rectangular base. Some uprights you can bolt engine mounts to and some uprights at the bellhousing end to bolt through, don't rest it on the sump.

    Wrap the whole lot in plastic and done.

    Full ghetto is an old tyre sans rim.
