by 3 flue I assume you mean 3-core, meaning it didn't come on any trucks of the same year/model? (I'm more a ford guy)

If so, there likely isn't any option other than custom fabrication. There may be a way of making new mounting holes for your old hold down brackets depending on the setup, but it sounds like you're in for some cutting, drilling, bending, or welding.
