    I've recently got a 1985 prospector 3/4 ton 4 wheel drive that apparently the brain fried on. It's a throttle body 318 and im switching the intake to carborated. I'm curious on the correct process and/or cheapest/easiest way to get my truck running properly.

    The throttle body fuel injection didn't appear until 1988 in the Dodge truck

    So the motor isn't original I'm guessing. Am I still able to switch the intake to go carborated?
