BBC towers for the 69 are being repopped. Avaliable at all the resto houses. That's the way I'd go. Also, you will need to change the cross member, or modify the one you have. (I'm asuming non-TH400)
Motor mounts (that bolt to the block) can be a problem. If they are too short, the crank pulley will interfere with the front crossmember. My correct mounts are in the car, so I don't think I can get a good measurement. However, I can measure a set that I wanted to use, but they were about 3/8" too short.
