Crane Cam...Have grind # but cant find it anywhere..

I just snagged a built 350 off a guy. It has forged rods, pistons, crank. He said it had a roller cam but didnt know the specs. (Older guy that is putting different engine in his Vette and didnt want solid lifter cam) He didnt want to bother with having to change the cam out and various other things. I am cleaning the engine up and painting it and replacing parts as I need to.

I pulled the cam out because Im gonna clean up the intake manifold and while I had that out I thought I would see what grind was on it and see if I could find the specs. Not sure if I want to run this cam yet.

The grind on the cam is FHI-294-2-NC, Crane, 11-19-89. Now it is a solid lifter cam. Thats about all I know. I cannot find the specs anywhere.

If anyone could help me out with this that would be great.

intake 248 @ .050, .520 lift
exhaust 258 @ .050, .540 lift

114 lobe separation
lash .010 / .012
