Crank case mix n match ok?

So I have a case with a cracked lower. The cylinders are still ok on it though. I have a brand new factory full case. What I'm wondering is anyone see a prob w using the old top w the new bottom to use up another 10k on the old top? I could imagine the crank bearing seats between top n bottom could b slightly different. But then I've read the top n bottom bearing is allowed to be off by like one color size step or something.
Any thoughts? Thanks

I've always been told not to mix and and match. Not only are the bearing sizes gonna be different but the line honing may be off as well.
