The only thing that is a little odd between the two 302s is the firing order the truck 302 is the old tradational 302/289 firing order the mustang 302HO is the HO/351 Windsor firing order

this won't really make a difference to the Truck fuel injection, just remember to run the correct firing order on the plug wires, the trucks fuel injection is batch fire injectors so it fires each bank of injectors at the same time so the firing order of the engine doesn't matter, but the Mustang injection is true sequential fire injectors so it fires each injector one at a time with the firing order of the engine so if trying to put the truck 302 under the mustang injection you have to switch the injector wiring to match the firing order as well.

My buddy and I put an 86 Mustang 5.0 engine into his 90 F-250 that used to have a 300-6. Pretty straightforward swap.
