Need info on stock v8 bellhousing cross member vs I6

I picked up a 65 swb truck a little while ago. Decent truck but the more I look the more I find whomever built it did not worry about doing things right. It has a 350 engine with a sagina 4 speed in it.

The engine is mounted in the forward V8 position with the correct towers. However what I noticed today is someone fabricated "extensions" (ie steel plates) from the bell housing to the original I6 cross member. The original x member is much further back than the bell housing so these span the distance.

My question, is there a different bell housing cross member for the V8 vs the I6? Or is the same x member used but located in a different position?

Any info is appreciated.
