Default Garmin GMR 404 ... need some help

So a while back I posted here asking if anyone knew of a good contact who can help me with a radar problem. Some fellow boaters commented phone numbers and I commend you all for the help.

Just to recap, my GMR 404 open array radar had an issue. The main gear that makes the array spin shattered and I simply wanted to replace the gear.

The company I contacted had a used and parted out GMR 404 that I purchased off of them. It had the gears intact but most of the electronics were bad. From what I read online, that main gear shatters when people try to replace the part and and don't shim it up properly.

My question to you all, would it be better to try to replace the gear in my original unit, or take all the electronics from my unit and place them into the parted out unit that already has the main gear installed. From what I see, the parts just unscrew and plug into each other.
