Computer controlled quadrajet on an early 350

I just picked up a quadrajet today for $10. After checking the numbers it came off a 1986 chevy truck. I've read and heard you can't run one of these on an older engine without problems. From what I'm seeing on the carb, most of the ecm crap is external. It looks like I could remove it all and just run a manual choke. After that wouldn't it be the same as an older carb?

One thing that caught my eye with this carb is the idle mixture screws aren't capped off. I've always noticed with the ECM controlled carbs, the idle mixture screws are inaccessible.

I want to order a $15 rebuild kit and have a $25 carb. Will this work on my early 350 Chevy?

Thanks for your time,
