Yes, it's the same as my friend Jack's car which he has owned from new. The main difference is the cam gear as far as I know other than the advance slot size, spring type and tension, i.e. curve.
This one is 351W, not 302, which I think is a different height casting. When I found this one, the guy had another marked as a 302 and it was quite a bit shorter although as it was also a Duraspark, that may have been a reason, not sure, had little dealings with 302's

One of the members in the past needed one for his 429 and I found one and bought then he did not take it, advance only. I do not know where I suck it. Was in the old closed parts house I got the 351 C Stant thermostats out of. 
Would be tough to restore one of them. Would have to split it above the crimp to get it apart, then weld a new band in place, grind and plate then make a die to crimp it back together. Would be very expensive then you have to have the new diaphragm that is probably hens teeth.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Yes, to restore would definitely be near impossible, but stranger things happen. I had thought about just buffing it all and re-dichromat the ring only. I can live without vacuum advance and don't need the retard side either. First, I have to get the canister off. The damn soft metal screws broke of course. Even a new release product I bought, guaranteed to work, did not get through the osmosis between the screws and the aluminum body. Oh well, I'll have to take it to my old workplace, set it up on a mill and drill em out I guess.
