I like to support the plane with a hoist of some sort (usually attached to
I-beam in hangar roof) and to the loop in the top of the engine case (made
for hanging the engine. Other way is to put a chain or nylon strap around
rear motor mount area and attach hoist there.

Caution about using the strap on the engine case for anything more than supporting the engine itself.  The crankcase casting may not be strong enough to carry the acft as well.   Carry the acft weight using the strap around the motor mount, right at the firewall.
