For a 430 the surge tank sits lengthwise to the engine, not crosswise as for a 352. The fuel pump for a 430 sits top centre of the engine at the front as is single action. The fuel pump for a 352 sits lower on the left side as is a double action pump including a vacuum pump. Attached are a picture of a 430 from the shop manual as well as pictures of the left and right side of the 430 in my vehicle.

Yup, the fuel pump is a dead give-away - and easy to see on a 430.

Default fuel pump

yep, easiest way(but NOT the only way) to ID a 430 is the fuel pump. 352 is mounted lower front of driver's side of engine, 430 is right on top of the front od engine, on the timing cover. Just a side-note, I have a completely rebuilt 430 for sale.
