How do I get the friggin' motor out?

I'm about to light my torches and cut this van apart!

I'm trying to get the motor out of a '92 E350. There's supposedly a "special ford attachment lift" that makes this job easier, but neither of the 2 Ford dealers here have one. I've even called a few shops around here and they don't have one either. Anybody ever pulled the motor out of one of these things? Whats the magic trick? I don't want to pull the intake & heads b/c the motor runs great - I just need to get it out.

My last E series engine R&R, I jacked and blocked the front end up 2 foot. Left the transmission attached to the motor to balance it rear heavy. Came out easy. Went back the same way. Not a bad job at all. After I wrecked the E350, the 6.9 is in a 78 F100. Still trying to find the time to make the oil system a front sump to clear the steering rods.
