I just use a floor jack with large cup and a piece of 2X8 or 2X10.  I helps
to have a helper for balance, but can be done alone.  Balance point varies
depending on how much is coming down.  Just the engine?  Balance is just
ahead of the drain hole on the oil pan.  Entire drive train?  I've done this
less and longer ago, but I think the balance is on the bell housing.  You
might want two guys for this one.
