Same engine supports aka towers, stands, perches.

1969/79 F100 302 / 1975/79 F150 302 / 1977/79 F100/350 351M/400 2WD.

Passenger Car engine supports are not the same as F100/350 supports, regardless of what the engine size is, or what the year is.

the towers on the truck were fabricated to accept the motor mounts with
the bolt going across it like this

willowbilly3 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
You should be able to. I think the small blocks all have the same spacing on the bosses cast into the blocks.
