I have a ducane furnace that's 13 years old. One morning the heat wouldn't come on. I opened the furnace panel and the diagnostic led was indicting a problem with the inducer. When the themostat calls for heat the inudcer would hum, get really hot and didn't spin. So I got a replacement inducer from a hvac parts store. Apparently since my furnace was made they've stopped selling the exact inducer i have. The replacement has a different connector. Both the old and new inducer have 3 wires- white, black & a ground. Can I simply splice the wires from the new inducer to the connectors from the old? My only concern about this whole project is that the sticker on the new motor says it draws more amps than the old. The old says 1.9 A and the new is 2.7 A. I uploaded some photos of the old inducer in the furnace and the new.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
