I will be using a hoist to put my new engine in my wagon, what is the best place to connect the chain to on an EA82.

if you have lots of chain, just wrap it around the bottom of the cam carriers/valve cover area.

or around the intake manifold. or use the alternator bracket.

the XT6 has two brackets on it that are perfect (and possible there for that reason??) for this. one is connected to the alternator mounting bolt, the other resides on top of the passengers side head. big eye brackets that you can pass a hook or other attachment through. they tend to bend easily but work fine for that. not sure on the EA82, have'nt messed with those as much.

I use a chain between the power steering pump bracket on the front (it's got that big loop sticking up), and the bracket on the rear that the engine mount/rod that goes back to the rear firewall attaches too.

anywhere, these engines don't weigh much. I pulled one with a skinny tiedown strap attached to the power steering loob and the flywheel inspection hole.

Yep, those are the proper lifting points. If the front point isn't on the ps pump bracket , there will be a hook bolted to the block.
