286 vs 302 engine

How can I tell the difference between a 286 and a 302 Ford small block engine?

I believe that would be 289 and not a 286 Ford engine. As far as I know, they are the same basic block. I would assume the only way to determine one from the other would be to measure the cylinder bore (diameter of cylinder). Do you know what model and year the engines came from?
