I'm not experienced with this era of brute but wonder what the hang-up is lifting the engine an inch or so? Even removing an engine isn't an enormous amount of work, an inch or two should be easy, especially for a competent shop. Unbolt the mounts, check
for potential clearance issues and lift, or jack. It would probably be safest to put the car low and just lift with an engine hoist.
