I'm going to look at a 77 LTD as a parts car. Is there a simple way of distinguishing between a 302 and a 351W without decoding the door tag (if its still there)? Thanks.

I give a quick glance to the ridge behind the distributor where the intake bolts on to. If it is almost even, it's a 289/302. If it is raised about 1 inch, it's a 351. Don'y need to decode nutin'.
