the long pump will have a 1/2" gap between the pump and the timming chain cover,,
short pump will almost touch...

If I remember correctly ( sometimes I do) the "68 and up had the long pump. I could be wrong about that, I was wrong once before, in 1947.

I'm pretty sure you were wrong only in 1947, and not in 2010.

As far as I can tell the short pump was used on the early small journal motors(1967 and earlier), and Nova (through 6 and Corvette blocks through 69. That's not to say something didn't come off the line with short pump in 70's but nothing I've ever seen had the short pump in the 80's.
