"b" or "rb"?

First thanks for the earlier responses, however I am still confused as to which engine I have. After scraping off the 1/2" of oil/grease on the ID tag I found the the stamping of MP383 with the number 17837 below it which would indicate that the engine is a low deck 'b'. The problem is if I am looking at the engine leaning over the radiator the stamping is on the right side of the distributor which would possably indicate that it is a 'rb' engine. Am I having a brain fart or am I missing something, the engine does have a 4bbl carb, the engine appears to be original, but no history of the car was available when I purchased it 10 years ago. Thanks Rich
