The first time I rebuilt my 948, I and 1 other guy installed it (engine
only, sans manifolds etc but with cyl head) back into my Bugeye (bonnet
removed) without using any lifting aids whatsoever.  It was a "straight
shot" from the back of a truck into the car.  I would not, however
attempt the same on a square body car.  That said, the block and tackle
probably would suffice, as would a cable type "come along".
