    Hi everybody.
    I was wondering if you can take a western power unit, remove the cable control and put in its place the newer electric block control to operate the power unit?
    I have a brand new western cable operated power unit used one year very little, and a unimount power unit I would like to use the new power unit on given it is 8 years newer but I don't know if they are interchangeable.
    thanks Tim

    you have to change the entire power unit, not just the valve block
