Where do I attach the chains from the engine hoist to the engine. A picture would be great.

I removed the valve cover and used the two head bolts second from the back and the two head bolts second from the front, It is nice to have a leveler bar too.

If it has 2 or 3 valve cover bolts, hook a spreader bar to them, pull only straight on these bolts, also, make sure they are screwed in all the way.

I made up a lift bracket out of 1/4" steel plate that attached to the coil mount bolts on the head and wrapped the lift chain around the back runner of the intake manifold using an old piece of inner tube as a cushion between the chain and the manifold. It lifted the engine and transmission together just about perfectly level. I didn't use a leveler as I had removed the front clip but a leveler would make it easier if the clip isn't removed.
I got the idea from a member here.

If you peruse youtube theres some video's detailing R&R'ing engines from these AD trucks, good luck.
