EFI to Carb

Picked up a '89 Bronco that I'm doing a long travel setup with. Previous owner did a good job restoring, but chased a gremlin with the engine for a while. It stumbles during idle a lot and dies, does ok when revved up. They replaced almost everything except fuel regulator and fuel pump(s). Long term goal of this rig is to be on dual fuel with propane, so I'd rather switch to a carb setup for a simpler dual fuel. I have a 302 edel carb intake and some holley carbs, can I simply switch the intakes and leave everything else alone? I can figure out a way to sheet metal an upper plenum for what I want, but I'd rather be disabling a fuel pump than a complete EFI system when I switch back and forth

depends on what transmission you have. I assume the bronco has a 5.0 in it?

pull codes and see what you come up with. some people just throw parts at a problem with out proper diag. I bet we could help you get this running correctly.
