I need some help figuring out what I have. Engine: looking at the block from the driver's side...looking to the left of the exhaust pipe, I see the raised numbers: 030-12, and on the right side of the exhaust (closest to the firewall) I read 0047. Does this give me the info on what year block I have? Also, the carb, single barrell, has the numbers 6-1695 on the driver's side. What do I have?

The casting numbers on the driver's side of the block doesn't do much for telling us the year of the engine. In general, it does sound like a 77 and later cast crank block.
Take a look to see if you can find some stamped numbers in the pad by the alturnator or on the side pad back at the rear of the valve cover.
