I've got a CGE with a broken motherboard (I think). Got an opportunity to swap it out for a CGE Pro logic board.

 

Are they interchangeable?

No, they are not.

 

One of the big issues with the CGE is that parts availability has been a problem now for a few years.  If the mount is good mechanically, I believe that it can be retrofitted with an OnStep system.  I do think that it's a big project to make the conversion, though.
