I am almost certain that the Q4 ones are longer than the 'regular' ones, so probably not an option!

Maybe the unoriginal longer ones requires to be threaded deeper...

That might have been the case as well, memory is a bit hazy on this one :)

EDIT: I've just checked and actually the one needed for Q4 is shorter. See also the first post in this thread. So I'm pretty sure it was the matter of cutting the 'standard' 164 rods to length and then threading.

I did write '...almost certain...' ;)

Thanks for finding out, I will try and find the photos I have somewhere.

I found the photos from my earlier posts. They show why I did not recall modifying the threads :)
