air travel – Can I pack a gas engine in my check-in luggage

I’m flying from New York (back) to Israel, and I’m wondering if it would be possible to pack a gas engine – new, in its original packaging in my check-in luggage.

Here’s what it looks like

As far as dimensions and weight (38 lbs) is concerned, I should be fine, my concern is regarding the fact that it’s a motor.

I’m flying on elal airlines, and from their dangerous materials page it would seem like a new motor would be Ok.

But I’m not a frequent flier, so I guess there may be issues that I haven’t considered.
