I am working on a 1972 ford f250 with a 390 engine that came with no distributor. I bought a 390 distributor, and it wont fit in the distributor bore. This should be a FE engine.I was told ford made a 391 FT engine that is the exact block, but the distributor housing is a different size. Any help will be appreciated.

Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like you have a different engine. Are you certain it is the 390? It could be a 351.
