Clean up the K member and look for the V8 bolt holes, they are there, stamped at the factory. All frames will have them no matter what engine option is installed. If the current V6 is a 4.3 the new mount locations will be about 3" further forward on the K member. You can also use the V6 engine brackets if you swap them side for side on the V8. Do this all the time on Astro swaps.

Most c-10's use engine stands/brackets that bolt to the frame, the engine mounts are not bolted directly to the cross member that sits under the oil pan, Like most chevy cars.
