One quick way to identify engine type is by the location of the distributor. If it's upright and mounted on the block, you've got a "B" block. If it's horizontal and sticking out of the valve cover, you're looking at an "H" block. The '85's are probably all "H" blocks. You should be in good shape. Good luck.
