I went to the website for C&G Early Ford parts to look at part numbers and see what is different.  It appears the ’49s have a different motor mount and water pump than the other years.  Did you change water pumps at the time of the overhaul?  If you used a later model water pump it has a different mounting system that will bolt right up to your flathead block but will have the wrong mounting brackets.  Their parts catalog has pictures that might help you as well.  I would suggest giving C&G a call to see what is going on in your situation.
