SKR1.3 Z is broken

Hi, my Z connection is broken, stepper is ok, can I conf marlin to use the free E1 on my board to be used to replace the broken Z?

Yes this is simple!

In marlin open your pins folder for your controller card and exchange the pin numbers for broken Z with the Pins on E1
This will change the status of E1 to work as the new Z driver and the broken driver Z will be unused it not connected.

This has worked on my controllers though it is possible that more damage was caused an this exchange may not fix the problem.

I changed my X with E1 and remarked out E1 with a different controller board.

#define X_STEP_PIN                            36 //54
#define X_DIR_PIN                             34 //55
#define X_ENABLE_PIN                          30 //38
#ifndef X_CS_PIN
  #define X_CS_PIN                            44 //53

//#define E1_STEP_PIN                           36
//#define E1_DIR_PIN                            34
//#define E1_ENABLE_PIN                         30
//#ifndef E1_CS_PIN
  //#define E1_CS_PIN                           44
