1961 Biscayne.
Replaced original 6 cyl with a crate 350. Factory motor mounts reused attached on the frame, new ones on the motor, motor sits low in the rear high in the front. Anyone run into similar situation when swapping out a 6cyl?

You need v8 frames mounts they are different than v6 mounts.

Also understand that our engines do sit in place at a for to aft angle, as does the drive shaft yoke on the differential. They sit a couple of degrees higher at their front, than their rear.

On stock suspension vehicles, the carburetor mounting pad should sit level, engine on the angle, when the vehicle sits on level ground.
