Put the outer end a little on the high side. If it settles you’re still level. If it doesn’t, things roll easier downhill!

A lot of tractors also have a pivoting front axle. Some we would make wooden wedges to prevent the engine ‘rolling’ on that pivot. I’ve also seen chain or ratchet straps used in the past.
