Default 302 and 351 distributor

Does anyone know if the 351 uses the same distributor as the 302?

Well I have a 95 F150 with a 302 and it needs a tune-up BAD! I have a distributor to a 351 in good working shape, and was hoping I could just use that instead of going out a buying a new cap and rotor.

Pretty sure the distributor doesn't have anything to do with the firing order. It just goes roundy-round a lot. How you put the wires on sets the firing order.

ugh, so much misinformation....

simple point, NO they are not interchangeable..

the cap/rotor will be, but thats it...the 351 has a 9.5 " deck height, the 302 is a 8.2 inch deck height..

also, the 351/302 firing order is bullshit...OLDER 302's and NON ho 302s, use the older firing order.

every mustang from 85+ on{may be earlier, i forget the start date} used the 351 firing order, every 302 ho from then on, used the 351 firing order, and the trucks were the same way i beleive in 87 when they went EFI

simple fact, your 95 302 uses the 351 firing order, but cannot use a 351 distributor.

ALSO, do NOT put just any old distributor in your 95 motor, your 95 motor will be roller cam factory, and you MUST use a roller cam gear on the dissy, or you will destroy your motor. if you need a GOOD 302 efi dissy setup for roller cam, PM me, pay for shipping, i will mail you one from my mustang or pickup if your close?, i have several. they have the TFI module and everything.

Not true the 351 Windsor dizzy is the only one to use a 5/16 hex oil pump drive shaft the 289/302 uses a 1/4 hex and the 351C / 351M / 400 / 429 / 460 all share the same distributor with a 3/8 hex drive shaft the Windsor 351 is the odd duck .
