Changing focuser on MN66...

OK, I love my MN66, but really don't care for the stock Russian focuser on it. It's passable, but that is about it. I am thinking of changing it out for a dual speed focuser, either Feathertouch, Moonlight, etc, but I am concerned about the need to drill new holes, etc., which I really don't want to get into. Anyone out there made this change before?

I seem to recall reading awhile back that you can keep the stock base and just replace the focuser itself. If so, that seems like it would make things easier. Before I just drop the $$ for the change, any advice would be appreciated.
