The engine in full dress is about 300 lbs. (I think, at any rate it's over 250) so support the engine at three points. The ends of the engine bar and the back center. Drain the oil. Then lay the motor and trans on some blocks of 2x6 wood. Try to support the motor under the pan not the heads. Now pull the trans it's only about 75 lbs. (in any case I can pick them up pretty easy and move tham around, two people are better though).

With the trans off you can tilt the motor up and onto the pallet. I've moved motors around by myself with a dolly before, it is much better to get help.
