Ford engine pulling question

I have a 351M/FMX cobo and I have pulled the engine a few times. I really hate pulling this engine because of the way that you have to line up the torque convertor studs with the flexplate. Is there an easier way to do this other than eyeballing it and the battling getting them lined up with the assistance of another guy? I did it again today and we stood there and thought there has to be an easier way. Yes I have also taken the tranny off of the crossmember lined up the bellhousing and engine with longer bolts and done it that way, but it still sucks. Anyone else know where I am coming from? I mean GM's are easier since they have nuts and bolts not studs that will bind against the flexplate like my 79 T-Bird with the 351M/fmx combo.

I used to hate those studs as well, but I got used to them. Im a ford diesel tech and they still use the studs with the powerstroke/torqueshift trucks. It used to take me forever but I got real fast at them eventually.

so basically there is no easy way other than pulling them both. Hmm strange design but I guess that I have to accept the fact that they are no fun.
