Pull a valve cover off and read the casting number in between the valves. That's the only way you will know for sure what they are.

My somewhat educated guess (not to be confused with a wild *** guess WAG) would be 882's.

No, 882's have a longer mark on the end that, with some imagination, looks like camel backs,,

Used to have a local shyster that was selling 882 heads to unknowing kids around here. Back in the eighties.

Look more like a 624

If this chart is to be believed, you're both right. The only way to really know is to pop a valve cover. This is maybe a 5 minute job with hand tools.
