general engine mount question

I have a 55 chevy pickup that im putting a 350 into. Now I bought one off those engine crossmember adapters that are made out off black pipe that has the sliding sleeve on both ends. I have never used one before so first question is are they worth a crap. It just seems mighty lite to me. And second question is once you have it in and bolted to the frame should you weld the sleeve so it wont pivot. I was concerned that welding the sleeve would make the pipe brittle and cause it to crack down the road. Not a good situation to have.
