Old SHINNY 290 they are good old engines and still one that you can shade tree rebuild with just a couple special tools needed . They were not a super power house but in a straight truck should do the job just fine . Look in the rad for Oil in the water and look around where the heads meet the block for seepage and the usual pull the dip stick. look for oil around the Turbo outlet for turbo leaking oil . And If it is a Small cam or big cam .

How can I tell cam size big or small and is one preferred over other? If so is the wrong one a deal breaker?

On the lower left side of the block there will be three rectangular plates these are ABOUT three inches wide and maybe 8-10 inches long if it is a small cam and if it is a big cam these plates will be maybe 5 inches wide and about as long as the other . and it will also say BIG CAM on the side of the block. Also make sure that on the timing cover that the engine data plate is still there as it will have the CPL # on it and when ya need parts that is real important .
