re: Pro-1000

Can anyone here tell me if it is possible to change the head stack from 2 track to 4 track using either a 1/4 track head stack or a 4 channel head stack using tracks 1/3 ignoring 2/4 from an akai unit of similar design such as a TGX_600 series or even a TEAC A-2300/2340/3340/3440? Making the mechanical changes is not the issue, matching the heads is. Any advice welcome. Thanks.
