Default 5.0 ignition swap

I have a 5.0 from a 96 Explorer in my Ranger and am considering changing it to an HEI distributor in place of the factory coil packs & crank trigger... my question, is the block and cam the same as the older 5.0's that came with a distributor ?

Default Re: 5.0 ignition swap

as long as its a ho motor the dist cam gears are the same if u go with a DS2 setup like im going to be doing then the dist gear needs to be changed to a steel gear as the older ones have a cast gear
