frame swap

getting a very nice 4cyl. frame . i have a 6 . so another frame with a good front is in with the deal 6 cyl . this will allow a template to be made for mount location . question is ; can i then cut the 6 cyl. mounts off this frame and reuse? or are they not recoverable due to being burned in ? also if i cant reuse them does anyone know where to get new mounts (frame to motor) .?
thx for help .

The frame is the same 4 cyl or 6 cyl.
Far as I know the motor mounts bolt on.
So I don't understand the problem.
bump for ya

i believe the frame mounts for the motor mounts are different places on the 6 and 4 . these mounts will need to be removed and 6cyl. mounts put on . i have some 6cyl. mounts currently on frames but can they be re-used due to already having been burned in once ? thanks for reply
