Differences in Distributor

Is a 3.9 distributor from a serpentine belt motor different than a distributor from a 4.2 serpentine belt motor?
Thank you.

They are the same Mechanically but they might have different part numbers!

I believe there is a difference in the advance.

They do work interchangably (at least I ran a 4.2 dizzy in a 3.9 without issue.)

Thank you guys, much appreciated. I know that they are interchangeable, but I am wondering why they have 2 different part numbers and if that means 2 different advance curves. Mystery question.
