How can i tell if its a 350 or 305????

I have a 83 camaro. NoT A Z28, just a plain ol camaro. But in 83 the biggest engine it came with was a 305, I ran the number on the block and i found out that its a L98 or 89 something alone those lines and it was in the 79 z28. Will those numbers be on a 305 also? Is there any part, like a starter or something i can look up to see what i got.

A L-89 is a 427 big block and the L-98 is a aluminum headed 350 from 3rd gen. f-bodies and C4 vettes. The L-98 were tuned port injection. Check the casting numbers at Mortec .

What are the numbers on the block?? Look at the picture I attached to get the locations. Compare your heads to the other picture. Remove a valve cover to get the casting number off the head if you don't mind spending a couple bucks on some new gaskets. They are probably leaking after 25 years anyways.
