Question EFI to Carb Conversion

I have a 88 Wrangler with a 4.2L in it right now that has a spun bearing, I was wondering if I could take my spare 4.2L (set up for EFi) and just take off the EFi Parts and put back on my intake and carb and drop it back in ? I've done Efi to Carb conversions before but never on a 4.2L

I am wondering why you would want too. It should be pretty easy, swap the intake and dizzy. It takes a lot to kill the 4.2

It will run even better once you do the efi swap. More power,no stalling or hiccupping and bulletproof motor..
