Right, Chicane..

And don't forget there are three rod lengths, too!

Most all stock SB's at 5.7";

New powder in the new 265" at 5.94", and;

The 400" at 5.565".

No, 68 used large journal rods.

Also when looking for small journal rods if using factory rods, stay away from the 283 and 265 rods. They are weaker. You can see the difference looking at the side of the crank end, the machined surface is perfectly round lacking extra material above the rod bolts when viewed from the machined sides.
