Default Bbc swap into A 74

Just decided that my 74 needs the 402 sitting in my garage floor from my old truck. Can I use the 74 motor mounts or do i need to switch them out? I know I have to swap heater boxes. Which headers should I use? Thanks

1973 up clamshell motor mounts need to be changed over to the earlier 1969-'72 motor mounts and engine stands. It shifts the BBC over one inch to the passenger side for more clearance around the steering box and brake booster. I have a list of all the parts with pictures that I will PM with when i get home this evening.
