There should be some bolt holes on the front and rear of the heads you can use. Find a metric bolt that fits and anchor your chain and lift away. Make sure you use good grade bolts. you will need metric ones
It's definitely more awkward when the engine is fully assembled.
Some use the leveler chains attached to a plate bolted on, with the intake manifold off.
Certainly a little more wiggle room, with the exhaust headers off..
I just used heavy duty soft yellow straps and moved the chassis into position more so than the engine. Lifting the rear of the chassis made it easier for it to slide right in. By using straps I didn't have to remove any intake stuff. I used headers that I installed afterward, but it's best to remove exhaust manifold and you'll need to remove the PS reservoir.
