I would like to ask if its possible to convert 1 of the axis driver of Gecko G540 by attaching 2 stepper motors to a single Axis driver.

Im using Gecko G540 Stepper Driver with 48V 7A Power Supply. My X Y Z A has 4 stepper motors they are all 387 oz-in rated 50V 3.5A. I am planning to convert my A Axis to 2 small stepper motors but the motor attached is 387 oz-in stepper motor. Can I use by attaching 2 pcs. Nema 17 67 oz-in Stepper Motors rated 50V 1.68A by replacing the existing 387 stepper motor connecting to my Gecko G540 Stepper Driver system? How should I wire these 2 motors? :)

Connecting two motors to one axis driver is not recommended and is unlikely to work properly.
