Re: Need some help/advice
One nice thing about the VN700 / VN750 is that all years engines fit. You can put a VN700 engine in a VN750 frame and vice versa. Yes the engine will fit. I would suggest going over the replacement engine and check out the balancer and shifter placement before it is put in. these are two areas that would require a engine pull or close.
I must say, the damage from a standing drop seems unusual and I suspect something else was going on before the drop.
Oh yeah, especially with a 2004, get those rear splines lubed when you put it back together.
