Default 305 clutch on 351 Engine

I've been off the forum for quite a while but finally got back to repowering my 62 fire truck (1500 series with seized 305 engine.) I picked up a running 351 engine. I noticed the clutch housing is different on the 351. I recall the housing pattern is the same.

Any issues with putting the 305 clutch housing on the 351 and and using the 305 style clutch slave? The engine came with the 351 clutch and release fork but it's pn the opposite side and there isn't a slave set up.

Thanks for any help. Also related, once I get it installed, I'll have an non-running 351 to part out......I plan on keeping thr OEM 305 and seeing if I can eventually get it running but the truck has sit idle too long waiting for that mriacle.
