    I don't know, but oddly , I have a shovel in a rigid frame with an evo primary and five speed box, that i'd like to put into a Kraft tec swingarm frame. If the o.p is doing the same, i'm interested..

    Hoghead:
    Unbolt drivetrain, bolt into swingarm frame. Remove or alter any obstacles in the trans/primary area. Everything on Evos is better than what came on Shovels so it's all win. If one of my Shovel gearboxes shits the bed it will be replaced with a late Softail trans, starter and primary.

    Stock Shovel swingarm frames require notching of the transmission case to clear the swingarm. Aftermarket frames likely don't but we can't see shit without pics. It's faster on your end to just do it and post if any questions. You have both frames so matchup will be easy.

    As for OPs question, the year Shovel engine affects what you can run.
