No. 302 and 351 are the same engine family but different blocks.

The 351 windsor is of the same engine family, but it has a taller deck height than that of the 302, meaning that the crank and piston through would smash right into the cylinder heads - bad! Also because of the taller deck height, the width of the intake manifold increases just a little bit, and headers fit differently.
