Gearbox/Transmission Removal - Shipping Crate
Rather than stick my gearbox in a cardboard box I decided to custom build a shipping crate. Using some scrap 3/8" plywood, 2x2s and 2x4" I built a crate that sits snugly around my gearbox. It is well protected and doesn't move at all.
The interior dimensions are 23 1/8" x 8" x 13".
The exterior dimensions are 26 7/8" x 11 3/4" x 16 3/4"
Shipping weight including crate is 83 pounds.
UPS Ground from Indianapolis to Scottsdale - $58.
I look forward to finding out why my gearbox is stuck in 3rd gear and really look forward to getting my gearbox back so I can get my Spider back on the road before I garage it for winter.
More to come in a couple of weeks.
