Yes, the cam will fit with no problem...
The cam you're looking at is a symmetrical cam (same duration and lift on intake and exhaust) with quite a bit of duration. It's not the best choice for an otherwise stock 350. You need headers, a good exhaust system, a bit of compression, a stall converter, some rear end gears and a good intake system to take advantage of a cam like this, and it would work best with heads that have been worked over to help the exhaust side flow a bit better. You'll also need to upgrade the heads with the appropriate valve springs to make sure you don't hit coil bind with the lift you're looking at. I don't think your stock 350 heads will actually flow enough above .400 lift to use the lift offered by the cam.

A 400 crank is the same as a 350 crank: They're both 3.75" stroke. Only the bore is different between the two engines (same with the 389).
