Question Where do the mounts go?

Hi all,
swaping out a 235 thriftmaster for a 283 8cyl in a 61 4x4 C-20 pickup. Unfortunatly the 4x4 uses a obsolete front motor mount so I have robbed a cross member from a '68 truck. Now the question... I figured out the center of the mounts on the crossmember have to be 16" from the face of the bell housing, but how to I determine how high up on the frame to weld? ( elevation) I figured I could use the dimension of the distance from the center of the crank to the center of the motor mount on the block, ( I know the centerline from trans input shaft to the front of the truck by using a laser pionter) if any one knows this measurment..... Thanks in advance
