engine support ideas

I need to make up something to support the rear of the sbc while the trans is out. I need to be able to move the car with it like that. Any ideas?

They will hang just fine with side mounts.
No other support is needed.

thanks for the ideas guys, I think I will try to make something to support the back of the block against the firewall. The car has to move over some fairly rough floor and I wouldn't feel too good about it just hanging from the mounts.

You can bounce it over very rough terrain and nothing will happen.
IF the mounts are good to start with.
Remove either the distributor cap or distributor before the transmission comes out.
