    Can it be deciphered any further?
    It either the amount of blocks they had made to date.
    or the date it was made 15th may 1976

    CJ030647 was made on 1/8/1976 So it must be before August 1976
    The first 2L engines appeared in Australia from either late January or early February 1976.

    So it must have been made between January '76 and August '76.

    I don't know if it is injected or carburetted but it is 51kw. Others here should know that.
