Roll Me Over
I would not do it. bend a rod, break the piston.
you would have to get the rope in pretty even.
side ways pressure and rod will bend or skirt will break.
I would rather try oil on the compression stroke over rope.

You all are REALLY over thinking the issue here... But, I can't argue with the oil idea assuming the rings can handle it.

If the bolt is on tight enough to bend a rod, it's the least of the issues with that engine...

guys in the shop where i work made me up a simple tool out of aluminum. works like a charm for removal and install. bolts thread into pulley bolt holes, lay the bar on the frame on the appropriate side and it holds the crank dead solid, stick the socket on the crank bolt through the center hole. I think the factory SST is this type of tool.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
but you can't impact if the engine is still in the car unless there a way that i don't know.

Air rachet.

Kind of cool to see that tool; I was thinking of something similar for using the threaded holes.

I've also simply dropped the new engine back in and torqued it with the truck in gear before dropping the radiator back in.
