I am replacing the cracked crankcase on my 03 450 and I can get a used crankcase from an 04 450. The part numbers are a little different but aren't they the same? Could use some help, brand new costs almost 500.00, thanks

I believe they will interchange. Let's see what others say.

If memory serves, I think they will work but I think they have different porting under the cylinder to reduce engine braking but I think the cylinder is the same part number through 05 so you are good.
If tdub says it is good you are golden.

Tryce tells me they interchange from '03-'05, which would have been my guess.

Thanks, T-Dub :thumbsup:

The main bearings are the same, the trans and bearings are the same, the covers are the same...

but you always wonder until you get some definitive answer.
