If you use an iron gear on steel hydraulic roller cam, the metals will not be compatible, and will eat each other.
Mike is correct (if it is indeed a roller cam.-------You will need to check and verify as not all are rollers.)

In addition the oil pump drive on a 351w is of a larger diameter (than the 289/302) and it will not fit into the distributor shaft (whether roller cam or not.)
