The heads on the 302 and 351 are the same. if you are swapping them from one to the other everything will fit that came off the original assembly. I do believe that the 351 has a longer shaft on the distributor and can't be interchanged with the 302 version.

THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT I KIND OF THOUGHT THE THE HEADS WOULD WORK JUST DOUBLE CHECKING,BEFORE I TEAR DOWN. I I DID REMOVE THE DISTRIBUTOR SHAFTS ARE SAME LENGTH, BUT THE 351W BIGGER AROUND
