As long as you are absolutely sure the engine is unbolted from the frame and all bolts at the rear of the tranny are out I would block the front wheels and use a hand ratchet come-a-long to get it started down the frame.
PS-Make sure the wishbone is disconnected also !!!

Manny, there's really not a lot holding that engine in once all the bolts are out. Two bolts on the front mount, 4 bolts in the side mounts (2 on each side) 4 bolts on the driveshaft/u-joint coupler, two nuts on the wishbone "ball" where it's hooked to the crankcase. You have to pull the wishbone down a bit to clear the oil sump.

Just make sure you've got everything unbolted as stated above. Its pretty easy to overlook something. If you've done those things you should be able to pull up on the crank and move the engine forward by hand. It doesn't take a much of a pull.
