Just remove the ac compressor from the engine, and tie it up to something to get it out of the way as best as you can.
Be careful during the removal and installation to not damage any of the hoses.
I had to do like... yoga with the goddamn thing to get it back in for a 4V swap... but it will go in. For a 2V it won't be as hard. Yeah just lay it off to the side.
Get a load leveler if you don't have one. Seriously. Get one. Hook the front 2 chains up to the tabs on the block where the alternator bolts to and for the back 2 chains pull the top 2 bell housing bolts out and then bolt them back in with the chains attached. Manifold should already be off for easy of getting to stuff and also so you don't **** it up when you pull the engine.
I always pull the engine and trans as one unit. Easy, no having to mess with it under the car etc... Comes out easy with the load leveler.
