Measure the inside width of the clamshell mount and get some channel that's the same width, and deep enough to drill a hole through. If you can swap a 350 into a Ranger, you can surely build a custom frame mount to fit the engine.
I just used two pieces of 1/4" plate with a round heavy wall pipe between them, welded to a piece of angle iron that sits on top the frame rail. All sorts of cheap, strong options that will save time and money.
