Ship bellhousing down?

I'm shipping a 9000 auto tranny. Does anyone think shipping it bellhousing down would be a problem? I'm shipping the torque converter separately to save weight. Thought I would simply bolt the bell housing to a pallet, cover the rest of it securely and be done with it.

you don't think it would leak all over the place?

I know nothing sends up a red flag more than a pallet with fluid leaking out of it.

I know. I was going to let it drain for a day before I attempt it.

put a few layers of cardboard under the bellhousing between the tranny and the pallet, wrap a rag or two around the input shaft, and even put down a layer of plastic, or wrap it in a tarp to contain whatever might seep out. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of shipping hassle.
