Burners interchangeable?

Hello, new here and don't know a thing about furnaces. I have a 10 year old high efficiency furnace that can be direct vented but isn't presently. I want to do vent it and realize that means buying a new burner and venting kit. One of my neighbours is taking out his system for heat pumps and offered his to me but his direct vent is off of a water boiler for radiators. Are the burners the same for both systems? I would think that they are both for oil heat would be the key but I thought best to ask people in the know. Thanks.

    No. An oil burner must be set up for its specific appliance. End cone, or head, insertion depth, static plate, etc. 
    What make and model furnace do you have?
