Old school could be done, but lots of things may be required. Fixing what you have is the best route. When fuel injection is working it is far better than a carburetor ever was.

More efficient and more horsepower too. Most fuel injection maladies are either electrical in nature or the injectors themselves. HTH. -Jim
