I see lots of engines strapped (and not strapped eek)on top of an old tire. A straight six on its side (assuming any accessories are removed from to bottom side) would ride nicely that way.

I use a tire also. But i usually lean it and sometimes against a tire. But regardless, always strap it. Better with 2 straps. They will move, bounce, rub, fall, and cause a big disappointment when least expected.

You might call these guys.

Action Movers [saltlakecity.craigslist.org]

I've never dealt with them, but they might be able to direct you to a shipper if they're not interested.

You could also try posting an ad in the rideshare section of the Utah craigslist.
