The only questionable component I can see is up near the ringer. It is a coil that is up by the ringer which the schematics refer to as the 'choke assembly" When I disconnect this I lose the low fast busy signal but get no dial tone. I think this coil blocks the audio to the handset from the power supply and I have noticed it on other newer residential AE phones with board-type networks like in a AE80E. I think I would probably try to figure out ringer, hookswitch, and the 6 wire dial connections to a network I could install to by pass the board rather than replacing it.
