Will this motor (on Ebay) work on a Skyview pro?

Does anyone know if this motor set, Orion #7820, will work on the Skyview pro mount?

Skyview is an old mount (probably like the old EQ2) which has the 100:1 worm ratio. (Motor #7820)
SkyView Deluxe (EQ3-2) which is a 130:1 (in RA) worm ratio. (Motor #7825)
Skyview Pro (EQ4, some now called it as EQ5) is 144:1.

Clear Skies!
