Default Engine Crane Question

Picking up an engine crane soon to drop my small block into my 1967 coupe. What are the different ways that you can connect the engine to the crane hook? I've only seen the plate that mounts to the manifold. I don't have a normal manifold, mines an EFI manifold that wouldn't accept that special lift plate. Suggestions?

Bolt a chain diagonally across the engine or use a load leveler across the engine. Just be sure to use at least grade 5 bolts.

Harbor freight has a 3/4 ton load leveler for $25... Seems to be the easiest way. Thanks!

I have ARP stud bolts for the heads. Is it
Ok to use them or do you recommend that I buy separate bolts just for this engine drop?

Put a bolt in the back of the block in one of the upper bellhousing holes and then the other bolt in the front were one of the accessories attach.
