Yanmar mounted on Volvo Bed

I have a low hour Yanmar 3gm30f w/sd20 that I would like to install on my Volvo MD11 engine bed. Has anyone done this job? I know Beta makes custom feet to fit an MD11 engine bed, but I can't find anything information about Yanmar mounts.

I have a few options, but I'd like to hear from anyone who has made this change.

Options are:

1. Find proper Yanmar Engine/saildrive bed - ($1200 is too much at the moment)
2. Find custom feet to fit the old Volvo bed.
3. Customize old engine bed somehow to make the Yanmar fit.

Any help/info is appreciated.
