Chevy and Pontiac motor mounts are different as you found out. What is to short? Don't understand, your using the Camaro frame mount, so the holes will NOT line up with the Pontiac mount holes. You may need to redrill the holes to mount the Chevy motor or weld in the new mount's to fit the frame.

Or, you could take the '69 stuff back & trade it in for mounts & engine brackets for a '73 Nova with Chevy 350 engine. The '69 stuff uses the old-type mounting system with metal brackets on the frame, & the rubber mount on the engine. The '73 subframe should be drilled for the newer clamshell-type mount with the rubber on the frame & a metal bracket on the engine. This type is better if the rubber degrades, as the clamshell will keep the motor from lifting & accelerating unintentionally.
