98 600 xc swap to 99 xc 700 Quick question

Ok i have a 99 xc 700 that has a bent bulkhead. so chassis is junk. so i found a 98 xc 600 for a good price with no hood front suspension track and rear suspension. So what im thinking im gonna do is swap engines and suspension into the 98 now i have read people doing the wedge to gen 2 hood and bellypan swap. My question is does the bellypan holes for the rivets line right up? I know this is the exact same chassis and i have everything necessery already for the swap hoods cluster bellypan etc from another sled that i am parting out i just dont want to pick up this sled find out i have to mod everything up. So anyone that has done this already please chime in.

Well thanks for the replys but got her done anyway. Bellypan hole were close but had to drill couple holes nothing major that was actually the easy part . But everything swapped over very good had to change the handle bar mount bar and the oil tank hold that rivits into the chassis but otherwise everything was the same or close to it.

But i do have one more question this track when i installed it i see the there isnt much clearence between the track and the rail exchangers (like maybe a cm if that ) and it has studs. the chassis i took this track and skid out of was pretty chewed up from the studs honestly dont know how front heat exchanger wasnt leaking. But is this clearence cap normal? Seems pretty tight to me. Not sure on lug size ill have to measure but would hate to get it out and rip a hole on the exchanger .... these are my first polaris sleds so gots questions lol heres before and after pic

That amount of clearance is definitely an issue. When the track starts spinning, it expands a bit and the studs will be a problem. The old chassis indicates what yours will look like after you are riding, I'm betting.

The pics didn't show up...

Yeah im debaiting on pulling the studs not sure yet there is plenty of clearence by the front heat exchanger. Im assuming the previous owner let the track get loose thus allowing the studs to hit it. The studs are down the center and edge so they wont hit the rail exchangers but the track does for sure. i have the track pretty tight right now just for spinning it a bit to see what its doing and i can push the track up and immediatly hit the rails sure is tight in there.
Some skis tomorrow and it should be ready for a test run. Pretty sure i need some new fuel in the tank im get an exhaust buff/backfire sometimes at idle im assuming it be the 2 year old gas lol but sounds nice with the slp pipe the guy had on it

pics show up when i open the forum on my computer..... i can try a different way maybe ?
