I gave away all my printed information about 20 yrs ago but if you have ever seen both engines the 351 is wider. I take it you are talking 351W.

Such is life. Just passing through.

I have lots of books about it, but they are filed somewhere.
I do have a 1981 F150 with a stock 302 non catalyst. and I could take a few measurements tommorrow and get back to you.
I know the heads are interchangable, but the deck height is taller on the

now a 351 m is a completely different story, but were pretty popular back then.

Firing order is different between the two engines and as the distributor is right in front it should be easy. Just can't remember which was which without looking it up.

351 firing order is 1 3 7 2 6 5 4 8. But that was also the firing order on the 302 stangs and on any 302 after 94
