    Trying to maybe get some visibility on this. Can I drop a carbed 1.9 and auto tranny into a 2nd gen? The goal is getting rid of all the electronics as possible

    I think engine mounts moved around going from ford 1st gen to Mazda 2nd gen. You'll need to wire up distributor & ignition. You'll probably loose some power and mileage.

    iirc the first gen motors sit up higher so you may have to customize the hood. the motor mounts are different..
