Dl50 vs DL55 Spares...?

got a broken DL50 and I'm now thinking of bringing it back to life by ordering:

Crankcase
Hall Sensor
Gasket Set
Muffler


now here's where I'm confused; since this is not in production anymore, the spares that are available on most sites are for DLE-55... I'm sure the gasket set, muffler and hall sensor will not be an issue going on the DL50 but I'm a wee bit skeptical about the crankcase; whether it'll fit the DL50 or not... any take on this?

got some pics of the broken DL50 posted on this thread:

Just a note, the company did not divide into DLE and DLA.

It might be wise to just look into getting a new DLE55. Might not be too much more than the parts you are ordering.

that's also an option but i'd still be wondering to get this baby up and i'll end up having a brand new dl55 and the broken dl50 with parts installed :P

so anyone know about this? or should I just order em and see what happens?

Crank is the same, crankcase and cylinder and piston are not. Trust me I have done this and it's not just changing parts.

Order a DL50 crankcase (not DLE55)
The rest on your list is the same.

To make a DLE55 you would need:
DLE55 Crankcase, cylinder, piston, ring About $140.00 from TBM

What you can reuse:
Carb, reed cage, ignition, crankshaft, bearings and muffler.

Done this and it's like a new engine...

The two largest dealers are Valley View RC and Tower at the moment.
