Default Bravo1 drive with Fountain steering end cap

I bought a used drive for my Sonic since I lost forward gear and I can't get the parts to rebuild it to salvage my season. I bought a low hrs Bravo1 that came off of a Fountain. It has the hydraulic steering end cap on it. I do not have hydraulic steering. Can I just swap out my stock end cap from my old drive? It seems like the stock is bolts and this one has nuts on it. So I'm assuming they use studs for the steering cap. Can I just install the stock cap with the nuts? Or do I have to take the studs out and use the stock bolts?

I agree just leave what is on.

My Zeiger steering came with studs as well as adding 2 additional.

Yea, that's good advice. I'll just leave it on. Now if it will stop raining here I'll get this thing installed.
