sbc engine shipping stand/support

I need to transport a small block chevy engine on my trailer. What's the best way to support it and reduce the chance for damage? I've seen a couple pics of a "cribbing" support built from 2"x4" lumber. Is this what they use to support crate engines that are shipped on pallats?
Thanks, John

HEY JD: When they built my street rod they transported the engine and tranny bolted together on a bunch of old tires on a old trailer. They had it well secured with tie down straps. I sure it was cheap.....DAVE

When my crate engine arrived from GM, it was supported on two 2X6's, one under each side of the oil pan. There was also a metal srap at front and back that was screwed into the 2X6's. This whole assembly was bolted down to a standard wood pallet.

Depends on the engine. If it is just a stock greasy dirty engine, just throw down an old tire or two and set it in them and rope it down. If it is a full blown chromed out engine you want to be proud of having on your trailer, just throw down an old tire or two, throw a sheet over them, and set the engine down into them. Rope it down and you are good to go.
