I put them in as one unit, but it did indeed need to be tipped at a steep angle. I hung the engine and gearbox on an adjustable levelling bar, in turn hooked to the engine crane. The bar made the job quite easy: level when lifting the engine and box over the front of the car, maximum tilt to aim the gearbox into the tunnel, then level the assembly gradually as I lowered it into position. The bar was about £19 on eBay, and no doubt something similar will be available down under.

Thanks John and Harvey, I've never heard of a leveling bar, (but I see the local autoshop has one) and I certainly wouldn't have thought of raising the back of the car. In fact my next question was going to be how far did you lift the front of the car....
