What kind of engine crane should I buy a long reach or will a std reach one work fine to remove the engine and box together or fit them back in as one unit. I am looking at a 1tonne rated crane as I know the RB and the box is a heavy lump.

The one I used is long reach but the amount of length you use on the arm determines how much you can lift, from memory I used the second longest option which was good for 500kg on a 1 ton Clarke strong arm crane

Clarke do 3 cranes, a 1 tonne long reach with wheels that can be extended out of its base, a 500kg crane and then a 1 tonne option. I guess 500kg is plenty to remove and fit an engine and box together.

500kg is plenty Yea, because you have the luxury of having the head off you can support the sump from underneath and remove the aluminium engine mount brackets from either side of the block, chain off those bolts then use the 2 top bell housing bolts for the rear. That should give you plenty of support.
