365 and 755 LCD Assembly Swap?

Could you take a LCD Top from a 755 and put it on a 365. Say you had a 365ED and put a 755C LCD assembly because DSTN is awful.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

A lot of the mid 90s models had similar parts but were just different enough to make parts swaps difficult. I know the 750s and 360s used the same parts but with different fittings. The 365 used the same shell as the 360 but with modifications. If you want to modernize a 360 or 750/755, your best bet is to use modules from a 760 which are backwards compatible and in a more compact form. The exception in battery. The 760 batteries work in Pentium model 755CDs and CXs.

365 and 755 are not in the same product family/chassis, but there's a possibility the panel itself from the 755 line will actually fit and work in a 365 (this involves opening the display assembly to remove the panel, inverter and other parts)

One of my 770 machines had a bad CCFL so I took out a cracked 765 screen and saved the CCFL out of it and replaced the CCFL in my 770 and now it appears to be working fine (screen still blanks on occasion, but not sure if it's an inverter or switch issue)
