I was wondering the same thing. In the attached pic, you can see that the 3rd-from-left B14 nozzle was smaller in diameter - it looked about the size of the B8 opening. But the depth measurement indicated it was deeper, 0.75" versus 0.6". However, other/later B14's may have been not been as deep, or maybe the shallower B8 (in the pic) can be attributed to pintle wear.

Either way, the B14 that's 3rd from left does not have nearly the aggressive bore that the two on the left do.
