    I recently bought a 7000 mile Target Master 305 and was trying to find any information on them?

    I have never owned a crate motor because I always built my own motors, so the best I can do for you is to copy and paste comments made by those who have owned crate motors.....

    You may be able to identify your motor more closely by providing us with some numbers off of it. On the rear shelf of the block, where the bellhousing would bolt on, on the driver's side, is a number that is cast into the metal when the block was poured at the foundry. This is called simply a block casting number.

    On the passenger side front of the block, there may be a stamped number or alpha number. It will be just above the passenger side top water pump bolt head, stamped into the block.

    Pull a valve cover and see if you can give us the head casting number off one of the cylinder heads. It will be cast right there in plain view when you pull the cover off. It is a raised number, cast into the metal when the metal was poured into the mold to make the head.

    Well,how about your input on this cam. I have the cookie cutter 204/214 rv cam that everyone seems to sell.The only difference is that I have one with a 110 lsa vs 112. If I were to install it 4 degrees advanced,would it help my low end response?

    Gears and a looser torque converter will help more than anything. Your cam is already advanced 4 degrees as delivered from the grinder.

    Tech is right, but IMO you should be doing your gears and torque converter based on the 350 that you're going to build, NOT the weak sister 305 unless you're OK with doing them twice. And to do them you need to have your rear tires picked out, too.
    Curious, have you clicked on all of the links Tech gave you in Post #2 to read the Target Master story, including that GM pulled back all remaining stock in 2005 to destroy them? Also IMO, you did some guy a big favor buying his 305. It's hard enough getting rid of a Gen 1 350 any more, with the popularity of the LT & LS motors.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    The truck has a 12" 2200 converter in it now with a powertrax no slip locker and 3.08 gears. I bought this 305 knowing full well it "wasn't a 350"and im good with that and I now have a good spare engine if I need one. The lobe centers are both 110 degrees so I didn't think it had any advance ground in this particular cam.
