Default Retrofit question

Got a 98 blazer with the 4.3 vortec engine. We parked it cause sometimes it run fine and sometimes not at all, something electronic. I replaced everything but the computer ( too expensive ) as I said, we parked it and I'd really like to keep the chassis and running gear for a future project. Is there any way to get an H.E.I. and a carburetor on it ?

Yes. Conversion parts are readily available, but it might cost you more than a replacement ECU...

Buddy of mine is building a AD truck on a S10 frame with a 4.3 that he got out of a 1 ton truck. It was a factory 4 barrel with a standard HEI, no computer. Just thought that might give you something to look for.
