Comt to think of it, for a one-time job lifting a
dinky little engine from a Sprite that can
be rolled back and forth,
I'd just get about $20 worth of lumber and a
come-along and rig up some sort of temporary stand.

Or get 3 or 4  (or even 2 or 3) strong friends,
and have them lift a single 4x4 crossbar holding
the engine.
