<VV> early model engine removal question (and some humor)

If it is balanced, it is balanced (engine or drive train).

Engine only requires an "educated" tweak with the foot (while balanced on a 
floor jack) at install so as not to mess up the input shaft seal(s?).  A one 
person job (an eyeball helper may be needed at that point the first time).

Later, JR
