I use a collapsible engine hoist/cherry picker. I lift the motor by the lifting loop in the rear and hook up a chain arrangement that connects to the front mustache bar just like it bolts into the car. With an equalizer rig, it's cake to balance a motor or motor and trans.

Hoist stores tightly in the corner of my garage without any problems, taking up little room at all. You can usually pick one of these up cheap (around $200) at a local discount tool store. Comes in handy for other things too. Like lifting huge landscape rocks out of a pickup........
