What's the right way to lift an assembled 2.0 with an engine crane?

Where can I connect the ends of the chains to on the motor to lift it without damaging anything?

If you have a nylon snatch strap(tow strap) you can weave a

cradle around the engine, than hook it to the chain. The engine

is not that heavy, have a couple of friends come over and lift it

while you bolt it to your engine stand.

I second the nylon strap idea (heavy nylon, 2" wide, not the 1" wide cheapo). I also second the have a couple buddies come over. Easier and quicker.

I'll third both. I used a nylon strap to lift mine solo. When it came time to lift it and drop it into the trunk of the buyer's car, however, he and I lifted it pretty easily ourselves.
