    yes, and it's called a crate because they deliver it on a crate... no matter if it's UPS or DHL or USPS or FEDEX.

    so they don't actually put it in the crate? they just sit it on top of it? That seems odd.

    good motor for the money. You won't find a local builder to build a comparable motor for that price either.

    It would probably be ok with 91 considering how compression is not extremely high
