Safe to pull a C6 with converter attached to engine?

Ask this because, I pulled the engine/ trans togther from the junkyard car. didn't think to remove the converter bolts. Want to put the engine on the stand tomorrow to swap oil pans and check the engine out/ clean it up and get it ready to go in my hotrod a couple weeks from now.. As it sits, it is assembled and setting on 2 tires.. I don't want to tinker under an engine supported by a chain and a hydraulic hoist if I don't have to.. If I pull straight back on the engine after lifting slightly, will this damage anything?

No it's not going to hurt anything IMHO but it might make a mess fluid could run out of the converter JMO of course your going to be removing the converter anyway.

roll it over

Throw down a couple more tires and roll it over on its side and then you can remove the converter nuts, mabe not make a mess. sometimes I move the trans back a bit , then wire across to hold the converter on the trans to keep the oil from leaking out.
