I have recently converted 1989 351w Motor from Fuel Injection to Carb. The problem I am currently stuck on is the distributor. Obviously I cant use the old Electronic Distributor. I took a distributor out of an older 351w Carb Motor and the distributor shafts are different. The older distributor shaft being shorter and the newer distributor Longer. Am i able to use the short shaft distributor on the newer motor or no? If not what can i use and where can i buy it?

It should work just fine. Be sure to check your distributor gear material, not sure what kind of cam you are using.

Not exactly sure what the other guy is talking about being shorter. Need a better descrption.

I would think he's talking about below the gear being longer or shorter, the part that drive the oil pump.
