Everyone is worried what holes he has put it in, why not measure the distance from the tail shaft to the rearend, then the drive shaft he has, that will tell if it fits or not. Then do what you have to to get it to fit either a longer drive shaft or a shorter one.

|boothboy||Are the mounting (holes, studs) centered on the trans mount? If not, could the mount be reversed?|

|T-bucket23||There may also be more than 1 set of holes for the cross member. It may not be back where it was|

I guess the lucky thing is, he only has to cut one end.
If you are going cut your drive shaft, Have a shop do it so they can balance it right.

Is the back axle hanging or supported on stands?
If its on stands, move the stands and support only the frame of the car.
You can try using a pry bar to just get the u joint into the yoke. Once it gets clear and set into the yoke it will move back about 1/2 - 3/4".

I'm not sure if the 3.8V6 & SBC Engine Mounts are in the same position. Frame Stands may need to be moved forward.

|poncho62||Then the transmission must be further back than it was before.....How did the rear cross member line up?|
