Its a "made in Mexico" Target Master or Goodwrench crate engine, comes in either 2 or 4 bolt. Dont have a clue what the first series of numbers mean but if it has'nt been overbored it should work ok for a mild street engine. What do you plan on doing with it?

OK the first thing I would do is take it to a good machine shop and have the block checked. If its rebuildable try to keep it around 9-9.5 to 1, a Comp Cams XE268H-10 cam.... 224/230 dur. and .477/480 lift and a 650 Holley, you really dont need more carb than that for the street, and if you are using the stock heads then thats all they can handle anyway, and it will give you better throttle response. It will have more grunt than that S-10 will ever be able to handle, especially the rear end. Lots of other ways to build it and I,m sure someone else will offer thier idea's.
