Have always pulled both as a unit mostly by myself except for the hood. You need the two ton. never used a leveler, just chains but leveler would have been easier that ratcheting the chain over the hook. Never crushed any body parts, mine or the car. But that was long ago, This many years later might look at it differently. pain is easier to get and harder to recover from.

I'm pulling the engine and transmission on Saturday, trying to prep before my help arrives. Radiator is out, fan and shroud are off, carb is off, lifting plate is on, fuel lines and radiator hoses and heater hoses disconnected, driveshaft is out. I drained the fluids as best as I can and have a plug and bag over the back of the transmission. I still need to disconnect the power steering hoses and various wires and pull the distributor. I have some questions though:

1. Do I need to disconnect the Z bar?

2. If I'm pulling the engine and trans together, do I unbolt the transmission crossmember and slide it back?

3. Do I need a transmission jack?

4. Should I unbolt the headers from the block or unbolt the exhaust pipes from the headers instead?

5. How do I remove the Hurst shifter? Is there a way to do it from inside the car?
1. YES remove
2. I never have
3. Not necessarily.
4. Yes both
5 Remove the handle from inside. Remove the shift rods, then the two bolts holding the shifter to the trans and drop from the bottom. Moving blankets for body protection would be good but if careful not needed.
