Done an engine rebuild this way before too about 12 years ago or so on my 911SC when it burned an exhaust valve. Look at it this way, its less work having to lift the engine of an engine stand when youre done and can do most of the install by yourself this way.

One thing to think about, pull the oil spray bars out of the camtower and run a pipe cleaner thru them. Its the best way to make sure they are clean before reassembling the top end. You can drill out the plug in the cam tower to remove them and then tap with a 1/8 pipe plug to reseal it when reinstalled.

Are you also considering adding the little sheet metal block off tins that cover the engine case half bolts on top of the cylinders? My 79 did not have these on them from the factory but I added them during my rebuild.
