197 engine issue, need advice asap

Will this replace my distributor cap and rotor. The ad says for Chevy but in the description it says Ford?

I replaced the plugs, distributor cap, rotor, PCV and the ECT. Also changed oil and filter. Took the boat out yesterday and the boat ran fine. It starts right up and runs strong, but I still notice the rich fuel smell. We ran the boat for 3 hours wakeboarding with no issues other than the strong fuel smell. Need advice on what to do next. Here's a video on the fuel injectors. They seem to be working fine.

Not yet, it looks to me like there's plenty of fuel coming through the injectors.
