The deck height is shorter than the Series I, reducing weight and total engine package size. This required that the piston connecting rods be shortened 1 in (25 mm)
This says that this the series 2 that has the shorter rods, so i think the OP from that site is backwards.

Large pics but I left them that way for detail. I couldn't find any part of it that measured close to either 105mm or 120.65mm
