As a kid I had a 56 VW and only one trolley jack so I used to drop the vw motor onto a piece of ply & packers rolling on golf balls and jack the body off it!

You're right. The trans does need to be supported if you plan to leave it in.
I was just answering the question, "best way to jack the car to remove the engine.

Have I ever forgoten to disconnect the shift coupler? No, but one of my mechanics did some 15 years ago and you should have heard the snap when the nose cone broke!
