Default 97 ram 2500 5.9 gas motor

I got a 97 ram 5.9 gas engine. I want to
change the efi to a carb.
Anybody done this? Need to be able to bolt
the accessories back up to the carb intake.
Will i need to change the distrlbuter?

Why would you want to do that? Do you have an automatic trans? If you do, then you are going to need to figure out a way to run that as well, as it is all electronic too.

Can be done but the pcm runs everything so you will also need to take that into consideration. Yes you will need to change the "distrlbuter".
