The engine is currently bolted to an engine stand. I am of the view that with the help of two of my friends, the three of us should be able to lift the engine off the engine stand and on to the transmission lifter that I intend to used.

Do you think 3 healthy (66 year old) Australians could lift a fully assembled Corvair engine?

I will of course install the engine, differential and transmission as a single unit. And I intend to do this in the following order.
A) Install the engine/transmission assembly.
B) Install the rear suspension assembly.

Fully dressed engine  weight approx. 300 lbs.....  Can each of you handle 100?

Your choice on when to install suspension.....  you are not in a hurry!
