So about a day or so after I ordered the part, the system started to intermittently work again. Lucky for me the part was on back-order and I canceled.
After a few days of the system working, then not, then working again, it has been up for the past week or so.
Lesson learned: DONT SPILL stuff on electronics, but if you do, wait a week or so and see if it dries out and maybe you will get luck -- I did!
Glad it ended well.
