Dead Meade ETX drives

I haveĀ  a small collection of Meade ETX scopes 50, 60, 70 90mm. The scopes are excellent but the drives are failing.
The scopes are older and I collected them from yard sales and thrift shops. I doubt Meade would even service them.
The question is should I remove the scopes from the failed drives and attach them to more conventional mounts or try to repair the existing mounts which isn't working so well for me.
Suggestions wanted - Thanks Shaun
