    951 carb and Di differences???

    I just picked up a 1998 GTX carb model. The engine is seized and the crankcases have a hole in them. The pistons and cylinders are good. I have a crankcase from a 2002 DI. Can I remove the compressor assembly and use the crankcase from the DI and the pistons and cylinder from the carb model? Also, what crankshaft and balance shaft would I have to use to get this running correctly? What is the difference between the DI crankshaft and the carb crankshaft? Thanks.

    Nothing is really the same between the two. Forget about it and find yourself a new crankcase.

    On a slightly different note, what are the differences between a "white" engine and a "silver" engine besides the paint they used to paint them?

    The white 951 had severe issues and is a disaster waiting to happen.

    A lot of the parts (heads, cylinders, cases) are different between the 97.5 white engine and the 98+ silver ones. The only part that is preferable to have is the exhaust pipe from the white engine. All other parts are junk.
