Twin Solex Carbs/Intake swap with Zenith Carbs/Intake?

Pretty much sums it up, the bolt pattern looks the same -
Can Twin Solex Carbs/Intake on 62 220b Finny be replaced with Twin Zenith Carbs/Intake from a 67 230S Finny

Looking for insight and /or advice ?

Anyone here do this swap?

yes, and you get something like 25hp for your trouble, though the jets may need to change (I don't remember). If you have the TDM for the vintage, the later 220 with zeniths should be documented next to the 230S jets. The same table may be in the big blue book.

TDM == Technical Data Manual
BBB == "Passenger Cars Starting August 1959..." service manual.

And I have a BBB here on my desk. The relevant page is job 00-0/12, which is a table of the details that make the 220S, 230S and 250S zenith 35/40 INAT carbs unique to each of those models.

Ron, did you get a new project, is this for someone else, or are you just pondering a potential new project?
