61 Apache 235/3spd swap for 305/t5

Has anyone ever tried the 235 swap for a 305/t5 on a 61 Apache? I have the "x" frame, which I think was from 60-62.. I swapped the original front end out for a '86 front end.. crossmember suspension, everything.. I installed the crossmember and noticed that my frame is about an inch shorter than the 86 frame, which means I will have to make a spacer to go between the top of the frame and motor mount. However, I have also seen a person weld the motor mount to the frame and cut off the part of the mount that would usually bolt to the frame, any suggestions for the motor mounts?

Also, what did you do about mounting the t5 transmission in the "x" frame?
