Hi Jock, and welcome to the forums.

Its only an educated guess, but presuming both engines are the same, I think that it should slot in no probs. What i would be inclined to do (to minimise any software glitches) would be to retain and use as much of the original wiring as possible from the original engine, and use it on the replacement.

That way, you are reducing the amount of variable factors which can cause problems/incompatibility issues.

Hope that helps to confirm what you were already thinking.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
