10" f10 and 6.3 interchangability

I recently aquired an 10" f6.3 ucht scope minus a corrector plate. I have an emc 10" f10. Both optical tubes are the same length. Which leads me to believe that the difference between the f10 and the f6.3 is in the secondary mirrors. Sooo, can I move the f10 emc secondary and corrector plate to the other ota and make an f10 ucht out of it?

You can give it a try and see how well it works...no guarantees, but it may be OK.
