I was wondering when someone would notice that. If you notice underneath the car, I have a floor jack. One on each side. After I raised the engine up, I just jacked the car up and pushed it back. We use to do that all the time in school. Except that we used a single HD floor jack. We also used it to move the instructors car around(he he).
I did have in my plans while building the hoist to install casters on it, but due to budget limitations at this time, I was unable to get them. Expensive little bastards. For the weight anyway.
