I powered off the switch, pulled every line card out and then powered up the switch. When the SUP was back alive I inserted a 6148TX into slot 3 and got an index number of 77 as the start index. The old one is 86.  I see that the Sup starts at 1 and the rest to me is not really decipherable.

Although not the answer to your question, a possible work around would be to extract the interface names attached to each ifindex before and after the migration, and do your transposition based on that?
