8.2 Or 8.5 10-Bolt Rear???

I have a 1970 2-door Malibu. Originally a 6-Cyl Powerglide car. It still has the original 10-bolt rear in it. I cannot find the numbers on the Passenger side axle tube. How do I easily tell if it is an 8.2 or a 8.5?

Although the 8.5 10-bolt came out in 1970, only the new Camaro used it initially. I think it was probably '72 when the Nova actually started using it, and it was phased in very late in the run for the '72 Chevelle line.
