It should be fine if you get the engine as far forward as you can in the boot.

Should do Willo, depending on how stiff the suspension is

If you get stuck give me a shout, it'll go in the back of one of the Pajeros quite easily (as long as you can lift it that high), failing that I've got a Tow-A-Van box trailer you could borrow if you have a towbar.

Make sure the engine in "dry", oil adds to the weight and makes a mess when it falls over smile

Easy. The motor will weigh less than 2 average adult, and you wouldnt worry if you had them in the back wink

Failing that, check out one of the firms like PalletLine, last engine/gearbox I sent to London cost me about 55, might be worth it with fuel costs.
