Penn reel 4500ss to 450ss?

Does anyone know if it's possible to use a 450 frame in place of a 4500 frame?
I have 2 4500 with broken frames, I can find frames for the 450ss but not the 4500ss (I think I know why!).
They look the same, but thought I'd ask around a bit before buying.

    Exactly what part are you referring to when asking about the "frame"? Once I have a clear idea I actually have all the old schematics for 450 to 850 reels as well as the ones for the later 4500 to 9500 series.... Many parts are identical -but not the gears or the handles and a few other items.....

    I took a moment and looked it up... if you're talking about the part with the reel foot it's called the 'housing' and it's part number 1-450 for the 450ss and number 1-4500 on the 4500ss... That usually indicates that they're not interchangeable since they'd have the same 1-450 listing if they were... Hope this helps

    Thanks, I was hoping it would work. Not many 4500 housings for sale on ebay.
    I'll have to keep looking.
