I have a 69 with a 383 (same block as a 350), and I couldnt fit my Carter 120 gph mechanical pump. I ended up slapping a stock pump on to get the car up and running, now the engine starves for fuel when you keep it floored. Found out later that my car originally came with a six, and the frame mounts position the engine closer to crossmember than true V8 mounts.
I purchased repro small block mounts that I may put in, but am also considering keeping the six cylinder frame mounts currently in the car and notching the frame for clearance instead. Havent decided yet...not sure what to to patch hole in frame with if I decide to notch it.
Good luck with yours...Please post whatever solution you use and how it worked.
