HI i have a 87 ford F150 that needs a set of head, the one's on it now have 2 burn't valves and use a little oil throught the valve seals, they have also seen temps over 270 degrees 3 times (not good!). Anyway i just put a new set of heads on my 89 GT 5.0 and the old heads are perfect and i want to swap them out into the windsor. Will it work and what do i have to change if anything. The widsor is stock except for aluminum intake and a small small cam. But i just rebuild it and it needs heads. Thanks for all the help.

You may run into problems with the deck height of the two engines, the 351W is taller than the 302. Most cases a different intact is required, if I'm not wrong.

I think the heads are basically the same so I would guess this should be a fairly simple swap.If the heads are the same I can't see why you would need different pushrods.
