Logic Board Replacement With slight different one

Hi there, I am historically a PC repairer however we do get the odd Mac.

I have a machine here which is a MacBook (non pro) A1342 13" 2.4ghz Core 2 Duo. The customer has spilled fluid into this and I have cleaned. However the logic board is naffed. And is beyond all hope.

The logic board is an 820-2877-B carrying a 2.4ghz 3m/1066 processor.

My question is, can I replace the board with another, from an A1342 which is carrying a 2.2 processor/3m/1066. The model of the replacement board is 820-2567-A. I have spent an age studying photos and physically the boards appear identicle in every detail.

Is there anything outside the logic board which will object to this version change?

I thank you in advance for your expertise.

The heatsink is the same. The video cable is the same. Keyboard cable is the same. All the holes should line up, video and keyboard will be good. I see no reason why it won't work.

I've seen much more dramatic swaps (such as a1260 mobo in an a1226) so two boards from the same model number shouldn't be an issue. that said, I've also noticed apple has been running many different configurations updating year to year and hasn't been updating model numbers with it.

In your case, I'd venture to say they're a drop-in replacement, other than the slightly slower processor.
