Where to Bolt the motor to the hoist???

Hi guys,
I'm going to pick up my motor tomorrow & it's crated up on a pallet. I took this engine to the builder in parts. Now I'm getting it back & I'm not quite sure where to bolt the Chains for my hoist. I have 2 sets of chains so I can bolt it in 4 corners & keep it level while dropping it in. Just not sure if it's safe to bolt the chains to the exhaust manifold bolt holes to lift the motor. I'd hate to mess up the Heads that I'm in to for well over $500. Can someone tell me the best place to bolt the chains ? Thx !!!

I think the motor he want's to lift is out of the car and on a crate or pallet. So I imagine the hooks are not on the motor. If this is the case you cam use the exhaust bolts with no problem. Just make sure they are screwed in good where they wont pull out and mess up your threads. If your worried about scratch up the heads just put washers on the bolts.

Yes the hooks are gone. I will have to lift it from the exhaust ports. Thanks for the help.
Just wanted to be sure this was safe before I did it.

I used the accessory holes on the fronts of the heads.

Got er done !!! Used the accessory holes as I only had 7/16" bolts available. It's on the stand now so I can finish it up. unfortunately it will be on hold for 4-6 weeks while I catch up on a few other things. I'll put a few pics of what it looks like so far in my pics. Looks pretty nice to me.
