Question Replacing CW2, bought an Orbiter 2. Can't use?

Printer Model
Voron 2.4
Extruder Type
Clockwork 2
Cooling Type
Here's what I got currently, and don't want to change anything but the CW2 for the Orbiter 2.

SB 2209 Canbus
Hartk 2 piece board.

Every Orbiter 2 mount I'm finding doesn't have support for any of these things. Did I fuck up when I ordered it?
There is another discussion about that here:
I made a similar mistake... My setup included, Stealthburner, Tap, SB2209 and Orbiter 2.

Basically, there isn't enough room between Stealthburner fans and the Orbiter 2 and even if there was, the filament lever gets ion the way.
I resorted to using CW2 and keeping Orbiter for another job.
If you want to use the Orbiter, switch to EBB 36, of course you will need a few printed parts...
For those in this space, you may want to look at the Galileo 2 Extruder (G2E). This is an extruder that increases grip on the filament, uses planetary gearing, and is much simpler to build and maintain (no finicky screw tightness issues). And, it's a drop-in replacement for clockwork 2.

The only drawback I am aware of is that it is roughly 50g heavier. So can not be tuned quite as fast as a head with CW2.
