Bock 32E vs Brock IR32-R Oil-Fired Water Heater

I have an 8 year old Brock IR32-R Oil-Fired Water Heater that needs to be replaced due to improper installation/maintenance. (Some technician apparently mis-adjusted the depth into the tank of the air tube on the burner and, over time, caused the destruction of the tank insulation.) Because the burner is only 8 years old, I'm thinking that I can simply replace the tank and re-use the burner. Research on the web tells me that the Bock 32E is the preferred replacement. I am confident in attempting the plumbing and electrical switch-over, but I am not sure of the compatibility of the control unit on the Carlin EZ-1 burner with the Bock required aquastat. I know that my current controller on the burner is a Model 40200-02.

Bottom line: Can I simply remove the Carlin EZ-1 burner from the Brock and insert it into the Bock the same depth, or do I need to additionally change anything on the Carlin burner? Thanks

You should be able to move the burner. Just to be sure, I suggest contacting Bock.
