Quick difference between 302 and 351W

I have a 1969 Montego with a 351W I think
The Motor appears to be changed and a pully says 1985 LTD 351W.
I needed to intall some new gaskets and orderd gaskets for a 85 LTD 351 W
the head,muffler and intake gaskets all match good . the cork gaskets supplied are quite a bit longer.
Do I have a 302? It sure looks like the engine in my MGB!! any help to identify quickly the difference between the 2 engines would help greatly

If the bottom of the intake is the same level as the distributor hold down, it's a 302. If the intake sits about 1" higher, its a 351.

Re: Quick difference between 302 and 351W

I always look at the width of the intakes. 302's are about 9" wide and 351W's are about 11".
