FWIW, having recently done this (without a strong, dumb assistant), the 914 Engine Drop method from this site worked really well.

Using the two threaded rods to drop the engine is a bit slower (add another 20 minutes or so), but it is much more controlable. It is easy to catch your engine sheetmetal or injectors and mess them up. Slowly turning the nuts to lower each side allows you to check your clearances. I highly recommend it.

It also was much simpler to remove everything (tranny, exhaust, etc.) intact.
