    dropping in new engine

    I like the idea of getting the engine mostly in with the headers in the engine compartment and then attaching the headers before doing a final seating of the engine.

    Hand brake?

    You might consider converting to electric parking brake. Probably pull the necessary stuff from many of the newer cars that now have these.
