91 brings up a great point. On mine I put a pipe over the hole for the shifter and wrapped at ratchet strap around it when it came time to lift it into place. I used a floor jack to get it close.
I dont know how tight the clearance to the firewall is on a 4cyl, but in order to get the top 2 bolts on mine I had to use the floor jack to shift the engine around a bit. I think I cracked a heater hose fitting when I was doing this (gotta fix that soon, before summer)
The SKU (Home Depots stock number) for the swivel head ratchet is 526-405 or 458-438. Either of these ratchets will help you out big time.
