Carb swap

Haven't been on for a while... I have a question about carb swapping. Will a carb for a 86 2.3 swap with a 86 1.9?

I would say yes, with the right modifications: the linkage may not be exactly the same but he correct linkage will likely fit the swapped carb; the electronic connectors may be different, figure out the function of each wire, then splice on the correct connector(s).
