I moved a TD engine from ALbany NY to central NJ.  I managed to lift that by 
myself, but I doubt one person could lift the B engine.  I'd think you'd need 
two.  As for tying down, I didn't, and it didn't budge for the whole 5 hour 
trip.  I placed a thick plastic tarp underneath to keep the gunk off the carpet 
of my wife's Explorer, and there were no problems.  Just be careful when you 
set it down that it isn't leaning in a direction where oil can seep out (or, 
make sure the oil is drained first!)
