    Hi. There shouldn't be a problem using another CD4017. Although the difference may be in the power requirement. The CD 4017 BE runs on 3 to 15 volts. (A 9 volt battery is used in this one described) The BE I use is a standard 4017 made by Texas Instruments. Yours may be of another manufacturer. If so the voltage requirement could be different. It may be between 2 to 6 volts. To be safe, 1st use a 3 volt power supply to test it. (2 x AA 1.5v).
