First thing I would be checking is the PCV circuit. PCV valve, gasket and tubing. That's a fairly common problem on the older trucks like my 85 F150, and a cheap easy fix usually.

I think the 300 would do it, just kind of think the 351 would like it better. But I've never really pulled anything with a 351 either. I'm pretty sure I don't want a 460 mainly for the fuel mileage...
