The insert is merely the paddlewheel. The temp sensor and the transducer are cast in resin in the bronze shoe, if it is a B744V, as I am postulating.

The difference is that the existing transducer is likely a 600w whereas a 740 has a 1000w transceiver, so he may not take advantage of the greater depth ability of the 740.

Garmin also sells an 8 pin to 4 pin adapter. Check the ends though, I think my transducer came with the 8 to 4 adapter from Garmin.
