I agree with Pete, I do not agree with lag bolts.
2 guys, a rope and a 4x4 will get that engine out of the car where it 
sits. BTDT many times.
I use to stand on the shocks and yank the engines (complete) out by hand.
But then I popped a nut putting one back in at the Buster cluster so 
those days are gone.
The whole engine weighs around 250 lbs.
