If the motor looks the same, and has a speed sensor mounted in the top of the case behind the rear cyl. It is a 99-00. Though the tranny may have been updated if the motor also has a speed sensor "looking" at the drive sprocket.
The 99 is the only year that had gloss black for the motor. Starting in 00 the engines were satin, textured finish
To put in a later Freedom 92" motor 02-06. All you need to do is to swap the crank trigger wheel, and voltage regulator. The rest will work as is
