231 V6

Hi... I have decided on a motor for an old 1928 Chevy truck out of a 1980 Chevy Camaro. It is a rebuilt Chevy 231 V6 with a TH350 tranny married to it and I will look at it on Monday. I can't go with traditional motor mounts (steering sector is in the way), so I have to use the standard front mount tubular system. I have seen this on many SBC motors, and I think it will work here, but now I am having second thoughts, and maybe I am out thinking myself, but the distributor is located in the front of the this motor, and on most all SBC motors the distributor is in the back. So, is the front block casting of this motor the same as all other Chevy blocks so the tubular cross member will mount to this motor? (PS... yes, I installed a different rear end too.... 1949 Ford with 3.73 gears; perches were the correct distance and it was in good shape). Please advise if you know anything about the 231 casting if you would. And thanks.
