I would use Scout II engine mounts and build the adapter to the 74 side mounts on the frame from there. Once you see some scout engine mounts you will see why this would be an avenue to pursue. It may be easier to use the 73 mounts and install a new cross member, but I surely would build the cross member first to make sure it clears. You can add the 73 engine mount to the engine while it's still in the vehicle, then fab up the cross member with the rubber motor mount already in place. The holes are there in the 74 engine as well. They didn't take them out because the engines were still used in other applications.
The 1 ton trucks usually had a close ratio 5 speed, no overdrive. If 5th gear is forward and 4th gear is back, it's an OD T34. If not, it's a T35 or T36. The difference between them is one is a close ratio and one is a wide ratio. Think of the wide as having "about" the same gears 2-5 as the truck 4 speeds plus an extra granny, and the "close" as having the same gears as a 4 speed but an extra one in the mix between 1-4.
