Default Engine Serial Number Question

I'm a newbie to Harley with an '05 Road King Custom on the way...I'm filling out the MD paperwork for MVA and they are asking me for an "Engine No."...

a) Is the engine number different than the VIN?
b) If so, where is the engine number located?

Thanks!

Left side of motor near the base of cylinders. If it's the original engine, The last 6 digits of the serial number will match the VIN.

Neck numbers and the engine numbers should be the same or VIN .

And yes Harley did the stars on the shovel motors .

Scott, welcome to the forum. The chart below is from my 1971-84 H-D FX-series parts catalog and I also posted it in the other thread. The full seventeen-character VIN should be on the right-hand side of the frame steering head. And then there's an abbreviated VIN on the engine. The abbreviated engine VIN matches with parts of the frame VIN if the engine and frame are original to each other.
