Carb question on the old gassers

Hi, I just picked up a 69 230 with the twin carbs.. Car is mint but has been sitting and someone has obviously messed with the carbs which look to be in need of rebuilds.. I also have a 1979 250 wagon with a bad motor but was curious if I could swap the 4 barrel from the 250 motor onto the 230 motor and get rid of the twin 2 barrels....? The motor looks identical and the manifold look like the would swap rite over.. Hoping an oldschool tech on here can help Me out on this one.

Those 4 bbl carbs are dogs. Work on the originals and get them working properly.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
