You will have to support the engine in the middle if you are going to use the original frt mts when using a 350TH and rear crossmember, other wise there will be to much stress at the trans ,engine conection.Danchuk sells a side mount trans kit that fits your stock frame trans mnts and works very well.I'm sure other dealers do as well.It would be best to weld a piece of angle iron on the frame to bolt your crossmember to,but bolts could also work as long as you would have it supported in three places now.You could also go with side engine mnts and eliminate the stock front mnts.This would probably be the best route to take.The stock frnt mts should hold up fine esp. with new trans side mnts.....,.good luck
