Early SBC cam bearings are all alike. Keep in mind they are different sizes front to rear when you install them.

Better yet have a machine shop install them, won't cost much and they have the special tool and expertice to do them correctly.

If this will be a street motor and the cam bearings are in good shape, take the block to a car wash and clean it and leave the cam bearings alone. Or clean it in your back yard. Whatever. If you have it vatted at a machine shop, the caustic soda will eat the bearings and you're forced to install new bearings. Save yourself a few sheckels by cleaning it yourself.
