Exclamation My 1st engine removal. Need help.

Im doing my first engine removal from top and Ive been googling to find answers but no avail. Just want to be certain Im doing everything right.

I have an engine hoist and a load leveler. Ive disconnected all wires and front accessories etc etc. Tranny and flywheel is removed. Radiator and Condensor is removed.

I chose the front driver side exhaust manifold bolt and rear passengers side bolt to hook up to load leveler. Is it ok to only use 2 bolts and are these bolts strong enough?? Im worried about the angle.
Is there a better place hook up the leveler to without removing the intake??

As you can see from the pics the chain is kinda short and the load leveler is pretty close to the intake, I can barely squeeze my fist between the engine and leveler. Because of that Im worried about the valve covers when I hoist the engine up, the chains could ruin them when the weight of the engine is on the chains. Is that a possibility??
Looking forward to your answers.
