57 Chev truck - 400 Pontiac motor

I'm posting this for a co-worker. He recently bought a '57 Chev pickup that someone swapped a 400 pontiac motor into, but, believe it or not, never used rubber motor mounts. In order for the safety inspection to pass here in Alberta, they want him to cut the steel mounts off, and re-mount the engine. Anyone got any idea on a setup that's made for this application, OR, one that can be easily adapted?
Also, he wants to do a disc brake conversion. I did a bunch of searches on motor mounts, and am about to start searching on disc brakes. Thanks. John V.O.

Mount a set of stock later side mounts on the block. Trim the steel mounts so you can weld a tube on for the stock mounts to bolt in and you're done.
Disc conversions and so on are available H&H Classic Chevy in Bentonville AR.
Herman and Trey are great folks to deal with.

GMC trucks of that year came with Pontiac engines.
His may be a GMC with a Chevrolet nose sheet metal .
