Default parts interchangeability

I have a lot of parts from a '64 Ford 390 motor. Will any of these interchange with my '60 352? Specifically the distributor. Will it interchange?

thanks,
Casey

The distributors for all the FE engines interchange. It will fit and work. The advance for the distributor is optimized for a 390, but it should not be noticably different from a 352.

Most parts on the FE engines interchange. There were some changes made such on how exhust manifolds mount and how the the camshaft is held in over the years, but essentially it was the same engine from 1958 to 1976.

sure - only 400+ to go.

do I get a prize for reaching 100 or does it just mean that I don't know what the heck I'm doing and therefore ask a lot of dumb questions?? :o

I think the power steering issue I was having accounted for most of the posts - just as soon forget about that one - ha!

Thanks again for your work on this site Alexander. It has really been invaluable in getting everything back together on my car.
