OK, parts are in. The '03 starter gear bearing and washer will not fit on the '04 crankshaft, but the starter gear itself will fit, however, there is lots of space between the gear and the shaft. The '04 gear has a bushing in it and it fits the shaft with little clearance. Since the crankshaft and starter gear spin independently of each other, I would guess that you could use the '03 gear because there is no need for it to contact the shaft, but the '04 gear seems to provide a bit more stability with the second point of contact.
Is there any other reason the 03 gear, either with or without the washer wouldn't work?
Bottom line: I think the '03 gear without the bearing and washer would work in a pinch, but I'm glad I have the '04 gear instead.....
