The left distributor is FEU-12127-J from a 1958 332 FE, the right FEW-12127-H from a 1959 430 MEL. They use the same FEK-12378-B vacuum advance and seem to be the same internals. There is a difference in gear to seal distance with the FE being greater. The 332 gear is 1.042 o.d. The 430 gear measured 1.052. The shaft diameter was different by .0002, I don't know if there are different shafts or they are just on extreme ends of tolerance.
