The Difference Between the Xerox 8550, 8560, Ink Stix and Ink Loaders

The Difference Between the Xerox 8550, 8560, Ink Stix and Ink Loaders

thread723-1569075: Phaser 8560 Ink...
My main question is in the difference of Printhead Ink melting/Printing Temp Points between the 8550 and the standered 8560 ink. I am interested in weather the different inks can be used in an interchangeable manner? My idea is to have an Ink Loader for the 2 different machines on hand to get around the hanging up of the cut down 8560's nub in an 8550's ink loader. Is there any difference between the 2 Ink Loaders? Are there any chips in them as to say "I am an 8560 or an 8550 Ink Loader" that the printer will be able to tell one from another? Because the 8560 ink seems to be less in quantity and lower price on some of the auction sites. This also goes for the 8560MFP ink  which has the same shape as the 8560 plain. Can some one come up with an answer to weather this is a viable idea or am I just spinning my wheels in Hot Wat Wax?

Thanks Carter
