Tips for removing prop shaft coupler: Engine Swap

Hi Afourians,
Im replacing a cracked block A4 with another low hour A4 that I am doing some preventative maintenance on. I need advice on the best way to remove the prop shaft and engine coupler so i can drop in my new A4? Do i just place block on the prop to keep it from moving and then crank the bolts out?
Also any advice on things to take care of on the new engine before drop in?
the old engine is an early type the new is a late model

Things Ive done on the replacement engine:
new water jacket plate and alternator arm
High output alternator
new carburetor w/ polishing filter from electric pump
new plugs and wires
new plumbing
new wires
a coat of fresh paint(being applied soon)
