Shipping Tips

Protect YOUR valuable property !

Here are some general tips

  • Heavy objects must NOT be able to move within the carton at all.
  • Items with small pointy ends must have plenty of wrapping to prevent the ends from poking out of the carton. This applies to crankshafts and heads with studs.
  • Extra reinforcement with flattened boxes provides an amazing amount of strength.
  • Double and triple tape the bottom of the exterior carton. It doesn’t hurt to do this for the top, too.

Shipping DON’Ts

  • It is a bad idea to loosely wrap heads in heavy craft paper and to fill the shipping carton with foam, etc.. The heads will then  move too freely, possibly damaging each other or perforate the shipping carton and damaging equipment or the floor.
  • Loose packing of the heads will deform the shipping carton. Once its shape is lost, it dramatically loses its strength and ability to protect your heads. Furthermore, the tape will likely come off, and allow the carton to open.

Start by removing the heads from the engine. To do this, remove the belt covers and tensioners and then the belts. Next, use 15mm wrench to remove all head nuts and lift off the heads. Please note that they leak oil. Make sure to let them drain for a couple of days. CLEAN your heads the best you can.

Always rest heads on cardboard or another soft surface. Don’t spread them on the floor, as it may scratch them or damage their finish.

Now, put your heads in plastic grocery bags. Use at least two bags per head. This will help prevent that last bit of oil from seeping out. Also, the bags help distribute the cushioning load in the next steps.

Buy two 10x8x6 (LxWxH) boxes, one for each head. Tape the bottom of the box, where the writing is. Place the heads FLAT in the boxes. Make sure the exhaust studs point towards one corner. The heads will rest flat on the bottom of the box.

Completely fill the space within the box with dense material. Newspapers work best. Take single sheets of newspaper and pack them tightly in EVERY corner to completely fill the empty space around each head. Folding the flaps of the box down helps prevent bulging.

Do not stuff too much materiel in the box to make the box bulge as it is counterproductive. Please note that in the picture, the short sides with the flaps pointing up are slightly bulging. A slight bulge is OK, as long as you can “pull” the flaps together on the top to close the box.

Tape the boxes shut. Write your name on the boxes, then put them on their side. Place the bottom of each box against each other in the center and then tape the boxes together.

Buy a 14x12x10 box (herein referred to as the shipping carton). Bonus points for double wall 275# test. Lay a flattened cardboard box in the bottom. Now lay the heads boxes in the shipping carton. Place more flattened boxes around the perimeter of the boxes within the carton. Then use newspapers or foam popcorn to fill the empty space in the carton. IT IS IMPERATIVE that there is no free space in the shipping carton and that it is not bulging.

Also, if desired, you may remove the cam end caps from the heads. This is the piece with “Ducati” cast into it. If you ship your heads with the cam end caps, they will be returned to you and the custom machined cam end caps with the oil fitting will be installed on the heads. You will need to indicate if you want to have the inner belt covers removed or retained. If no preference is indicated, they will be retained.
