I'm hoping that the reduction assembly is under 32kg so I just need an easy option for the main box. I plan to pack in strong cardboard boxes and check it in. Why? you may ask. Its because the freight from Brisbane to Honolulu is anywhere between 1200 and 2000+ and I could buy my little transmission a seat for way less than that. Go figure. Thanks to all those who reply.
I have split the 71 in-line at the reduction housing - no idea of the weight of each piece.
