He means you can put the jack under the crankshaft pulley. I prefer to lift it from the top with a hoist. The one time I did mine I disconnected the hoses into the inlet and out of the turbo. Removed #5 & 6 valve covers and covered the rockers to keep debris out, disconnected the exhaust downpipe and removed the fan. The engine will lift quite a ways up with those things disconnected. Loosen the bolts that are through the motor mounts enough for them to slide up the grooves. I also backed off the transmission mount bolts a bit. Once lifted I suggest you put blocks under the motor mounts in case the lifting device fails.

97 3500, 2 WD, G56, slightly bombed, 1.3 million miles with un-additized diesel fuel. Started the second million on 8/24/13
If you are lucky enough to be in Texas, you are lucky enough.
