are the connecting rods from a 1950 248 the same lenght as 263? They share the same stroke but someone insist that 263 are 1/4" longer.

248 versus 263 connecting rods

1950 Buick Shop Manual
Page 22
248 [series 50] connecting rod length center to center 7 5/8 inch
263 [series 50] connecting rod length center to center 7 3/8 inch

SO the 263 is 1/4" SHORTER
