Use a piece of chain and bolt to the head via manifold bolts.
I never use those factory brackets, i've got a chain with flat bracket welded on each end with a hole in them to bolt it upto the head.

that wont work as the bolts for the manifold wont fit through the chain so i still wont be able to lift it up and out

Get another piece of chain lol.
If the chain is too big then use washers on the bolts.

well i think the rear main seal is gone so i might be removing the motor and putting in another one. if anyone in QLD has a spare block with a good bottom end let me know. if not i might just rebuild the 4.0 i have here but then i have to do the timing and i cant be stuffed lol
