Took the block casting numbers off the back of the block and found them to be this 10066036. When I did some research I came up with this
2 or 4
Target Master/Goodwrench crate motor, 2-piece rear seal, "Hecho en Mexico"

On the block pad there were only three characters on a very short pad that read 9 VP I know this is a replacement crate motor, but what other info can any one tell me about it? What year? HP AND TQ rating? 2 or 4 bolt main? How would I be able to tell? Trying to get as much info about the motor as I can. I figure there has gotta be someone who works for GM out there that may have access to this info. ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

That block casting number was used for over 10 years by GM for 350 engines. There is no reason to say it is a target block unless the engine code stamped into the front pad indicates so. It could be any 350 engine from about 1976-1988

Hello Bill,

Thanks for the info. The engine has a very short pad on the front where the engine suffix code would be on 60"s blocks. The pad is only about 1 inch long. The only stamping on it is 9 VP . Thats it and thats all. The block looks pretty new. And the words HENCO DE MEXICO is stamped on the back near the block casting number. I assume that stands for made in mexico.
