No not exactly, there are some distinguishable differences. One of the major ones you can check is if it has the block off plate on the right hand side for an oil filter. Series I's don't have it

Hi John,
Romeo and Bunky are correct in that the presence of the blank plate means a series II engine. However, early series II engines did not have provision for an oil filter (no blank plate). There is more info about the two engine types in this thread: http://www.wfmachines.com/discus/messages/335/92483.html
