There are those that do the lay down. I can by myself lift and center that engine in a scrambler with just a short lift each time until it's in place for a long punch to center one and then the other top/rear bolt holes. .............lm

I wonder what my wife will say if I raid her golf bag?

I set the engine on a jack at slightly lower than frame height and lower the frame, which is suspended by ceiling hooks, then once it's lined up close, jack the engine in.
OOPs! Were talking about CL's. Never mind.
In that case, the engine is next to the frame, the jack is under the frame, set to hold the engine up slightly higher than mounted. Nothing to do but lift the engine in, set it straight and lower into position. As far as protecting the frame goes, old aerosol caps with the tops cut out and a slit in the side are tougher than any tape or foam, and they seem to be in abundance, around here, anyway.
