how to i.d. a chevy 292 straight 6 cylinder engine?

I've just obtained a '74 chevy 4x4. It has a straight six in it and I know that 250 and 292 engines were both used. I need to know how to tell the difference without getting out the rule tape and slide rule

The easiest way is too look at the pushrod covers on the right hand side of the block. The short deck blocks are not very tall, so the covers are rectangles, whereas the 292 has a taller deck block, and as such has taller covers, they are almost square. My dad is building a 250hp 292 for his 81 Chevy pickup.
