Pontiac typically put a letter code on the front snout of the cam. CWC is the foundry casting manufacturer. Unknown on the rest.

By snout do you mean the distributor end or timing end? I found the R 142 with a tiny 4 stamped next to it on the distributor end

Front of the cam where the timing gear goes on. You may have an aftermarket cam and it can be very hard to ID it without using a degree wheel and dial indicator to measure total lift.
