Big Block Chevy Deck Height

How do you measure deck height on a Chevy 454? Or, how does one know if they have a 10.200 deck or the 9.800 deck? Thanks!

You can do this by looking up the casting number, but on a whim where casting numbers aren`t avalible and your looking at the raw block most have the word "truck" casted into the block behind the timing cover. Another way to tell is look at the upper water pump bolt hole. The hole on the short deck block will be very close to the deck, less than a 1/4 inch. On a tall deck block the bolt hole will be about a 1/2 inch from the deck.
