How can I lock the engine in place so as to remove the crank hub? The head is off so please don't suggest stuffing string in the cylinder.

Why do you want to pull the crank hub? get a helper to lock the flywheel with a prybar. If all you are changing is the t-belt, you can remove the bolts around the crank bolt and take the pulley off. Then remove the lower cover for access to the belt.
