Measure the stroke...Take a plug out and put a piece of stiff wire in there and go through a cycle. Measure how much wire goes in there....

or, check the suffix code..... http://www.nastyz28.com/chevy-engine...ngs.php#suffix

There's really nothing special about a 302 block, it's just another 4" block. The value comes with the suffix code, needed to make cars numbers matching.
