Man, you guys are making this really really tough.
See post 20,
all you have to do is move the heater hose and look, or look on any of the 4 corners of the engine for obvious 1" or zero deck height, or as Woodz said, the rear of the block.
I have seen many many of each.
To me the picture looks like a W because of the intake manifold width, but I wouldn't bet my life on a picture, it is hard to see the 1.4 inches wider.
Here's a 5.0/302 short deck block picture. It is obvious the deck height is at the water pump boss.
I am still trying to find a tall deck picture.
