Just giving you a hard time. If you identify an engine as a 302 by the "heads being close to the block" all engines would be 302's.

There is about a 1" "stand off" in the casting of a 351 which is not present on a 302

THANK YOU Brigette! PO messed up the firing order on my '93 F150 XLT 5.0 (302).
Changed 2nd and 5th plug wires and she fired right up.
She's now making that beautiful V8 sound that i was missing..
Picked up about 30 to 50 HP too!
