Lifting points (bolt holes) for 327

I've searched around and found different locations - from modifed plates on intake manifold (w/out carb installed) - as I have an aluminum intake manifold don't think I'll go there! The top two water pump and two top bell housing bolt holes sounds good but not a lot of room between firewall and bell housing. Also out there are those who use head bolt holes - doesn't this risk twisting heads?

Thanks all for your replies!

No the heads won't twist.
You can use a carb plate on an Aluminum intake, Its done everyday.
You can use the accessory holes on the heads that have accessory holes.
You can use the exhaust bolt holes.
The bell housing holes the water pump holes.

Although not the best way to do it I just pulled a 454 (complete with pulleys, alt, etc. minus carb) using the pass side rear intake bolt hole and 1 drivers side accessory hole at the front of the head. The bolts I used were grade 8 and I had a nice heavy chain though.

Same here. Just pulled an iron headed small block with the M20 trans still attached using a lift plate on the Performer RPM. The new engine and TKO will be going in the same way. My builder delivers their engines with intake lift plates on them.

Re: Lifting points (bolt holes) for 327

Just a suggestion. I often find that the head accy holes are a bit tight to get to with a chain so I use a piece of 1"x .250" thick flat stock ~4" long with holes ~1/2 in from each end to bolt to the head and then I connect the chain to these. Gives just a little extra clearance.
