How to package a head for shipping


What you will need is a stout box, appox 2 inches wider, longer, and about 4 inches taller.
A roll of packing tape, and a plastic bag or tow.
Tall kitchen trash bags work well.
Newspaper

** Tech tip** remove any odd parts such as cam gears or thermostat housing.

First thing is to place the head in the plastic bag, if you use the kitchen trash bag, use 2.

Now the shipping box is ready to be closed up and taped shut.

The same method that was used to tape the cardboard will be used here, go 5 or 6 full rounds.
