How do I lift an M10 engine (1976 BMW 2002)? Bonus points for suggestions on attaching it to a strand.

Thanks to craigslist I just got hold of a replacement engine for my 1976 BMW 2002, a hoist, a leveler, and a stand.
Looking at both the engine in the car and my replacement I can see where to attach a chain to the rear of the engine (cast loop by the flywheel on the intake side), but I cant work out where to attach the chain at the front.
I've read a suggestion to just loop the chain around the front pipe on the exhaust manifold, but I'm concerned if this will stress the head too much, or worse.
I've also seen a few pictures online of engines attached to stands with 3 bolts on the exhaust side of the engine. Anyone have any experience of this?
Really not sure if this question belongs in travel & transportation or sports, hobbies & recreation ...
