I just want to swap out the motor unit so I can use the already installed door hardware and wiring. Is this possible? The unit that broke is ten years old.

Although almost all craftsman openers have interchangeable, it is not recommended. The electronics are something on the unit that can and do go out as the opener gets older. The part that broke on the motor unit can probably be replaced. The reason it is not recommended is the warranty will be void as soon as you hook old up to new, but it is possible. As far as using the electronics over, these devices are 2 codes old. They are not even rolling code. Any unit you buy the remotes will not be compatible, sorry. You can look at new ones and replacement parts at searspartsdirect.com. Thanks BB
