I have been wondering the same thing and plan on pulling my engine this week. My current plan is to make a aluminum plate to bolt to the exhaust side of the head using most if not all bolt holes available. Then make a side that will mount to the stand.
Hopefully someone has a simple idea.

If you get and adjustable engine mount you can mount the engine.

I did the same thing as bob. I use a ratchet lever block aka cumalong to hoist it out and I set it on a table. You could rig up a cradle that utilizes the stock motor mounts to hold it steady while you work on it if you wanted. If you are just dropping the pan to clean out debris, you could leave it hanging from the ceiling. Just keep in mind the engine weighs between 300-350 pounds depending on what you leave attached to it when hoisting it out. To make it easy, remove the exhaust completely from waterbox to manifold. Also remove oil filter as well if you plan on leaving the intake manifold on. The IC and SC needs to come out as well to make room. To make it even easier, I also remove the seat assembly and the electrical box from firewall and flip it over into the exhaust/battery compartment so the coupler can sneak past and up and out she comes. If you don't have a cradle, you can do what I did and use blocks to shim the engine up so it sits flat on the table. The pan is a V pan and there are 2 cavities on each end of it where they seat into rubber mounts in the hull and you can throw blocks under there to level and sturdy it up when it is sitting on the table. Just make sure the table you set in on can handle the weight for periods of time. There are 3 mounts on the head where you can use 2 straps to hook it up to the hoist to lift it out.
