Ourboard motor storage

I have a 1989 40 HP mercury outboard engine. I wish to take it off the boat to have the boat painted. Can I store the outboard upright, standing on the tip of the lower unit (on a block of wood), safely without doing damage to it?

Many thanks

Just lay it down on the transom mount. That's the same position it would be in if raised up all the way on the transom.
If it fell over while standing up,it could be damaged.
