Shipping cylinder head US to Portugal

I am selling a used cylinder head on eBay. Got an inquiry from Portugal. Weighs 82 lbs. Does not qualify for eBay's Global Shipping plan. Standard shipping (not overnight, etc) via UPS or FedEx was $750, too heavy for USPS. Seems awful expensive. Any cheap way to get it there?

Re: Shipping cylinder head US to Portugal

Not sure about your location, but we have a large Portuguese community here, and there are always shipping containers getting filled and sent over. If you could find something similar near you, it wouldn't cost much to have it thrown in with an outbound container.
