The two distributors differ in many ways. I believe you will find that the cap on the Prestolite slips inside the body of the distributor , whereas the Ford cap fits over the outside of distributor body. The rotor of Prestolite is much larger than Ford and fits over a larger shaft. I don't think the two could be easily confused. If I could see your distributor I could determine of Prestolite or Ford in an instant.
