Question what is all the mounting hardware needed to mount a 223 inline 6

i currently have a 1957 f100, the engine is sitting in the bed of the truck.....i need to put it in but i was told that there is a front mount that is almost like a cradle on the front of the engine, i saw this on a 1959 the guy had, but he had a v8, it looked like it connected to the bottom of the engine then went forward and connected to the frame i think. please tell me everything needed to mount my engine so i know.
my truck im dealing with right now



Im going to put it all back to original, except im putting a stepside bed on it.

Here's a link to pics of what you need on an old thread.

Are you referring to the steel legs or the rubber mounts?

Don't have any around that I recall, definately a good junkyard item. You could ask THartman, the fella that offered you all the other parts in your other thread.
