wet wrench vs dry wrench

I have a penn yan tunnel drive 21 footer I sorta got stuck with. The previous owner left the boat over the winter without winterizing it. I do automotive mechanics for a living but never turn down good advice.
The motor was a 350 Chevy that rotates reverse of a cars motor. I have pulled the old motor and salvaged what parts I could and I noticed the rods were in the same but the cam shaft was rusted tight so I tossed the block with it in it.
Since the firing order is wacko compared to a cars I figured the cam had to be different also. Am I wrong? If so where do I get one for it?
I don't want to sink much money into this boat because in the first place its 50 miles from here to a lake where I could use it plus I got stuck with it for a bill the jerk stuck me with

Wet vs Dry

I'm not a mechanic , but my book shows distributor rotation as clockwise for
Buick and Chev v8; and counterclockwise for the Olds and Pontiac v8.
Camshaft should be appropriate for the make, a parts supplier should provide the correct one.
