Its not a Harley number. Aftermarket cases? State assigned number maybe. Pics of the number would help.

I'm sure that many here would be able to identify the engine if you had a few pics?

It`s licensed as a 1994. I haven`t seen the motor. I`ll take some pictures of it next week. He did say there was a star before and after the ten digit number. He told me it had a revtec transmission but he doesnt know what a Shovel is. The numbers are on on the right side.

Don't think it's a Harley engine number pad should be centered on an evo.

harley did that on some years....

In that location....

If it was a crate motor then it wont show on Bike registry... you will need to go to the dealer for them to verify the number...

A close up shot would help as H-D has distinctive numbers on there motors that differences, depending on the time period...
