Post water pump type

I have an engine in my 1965 vette that is a 1980-85 GM block 350 cid (truck), this is based on the numbers stamped on the block.
Everything I read says that the water pump for that year and size engine would be a long water pump.But, talking to people who have seen it they say they **think** it looks like a short pump. Is there a deffinate way to tell, and if I get the number stamped on it would there be a web sight that anyone knows that could confirm it.I'm trying to pick a pulley set for it and I have to know in order to pick the right one. Also would either type pump both fit?
thanks

If you can put 4 fingers between the pump and the timing chain cover. say about 2 1/2 inches it's a long pump.. If you can only put about 2 fingers in it's a short water pump.

1965 Corvettes had a short pump.

also if i am not mistaken, a long water pump measures exactly 7 inches from the base where it mounts to the flat part of the flange where the pulley mounts.
