1966 Mustang with 200 six to swap distributor and carburator

Gentlemen, I have a 1966 Mustang with a 200 and a cruiseomatic. It has been in the family since 1968. Four years ago I overhauled the head and now in an effort to make it run a little better, I would like to change the original load-o-matic distributor to a Duraspark II system. I realize that the autolite 1100 carburator and the load-o-matic are a system and therefore, would like to replace the 1100 with a Carter YF. Does anyone know if all of the intake manifolds have the same size carburator mounts and bolt spreads? For instance, will a Carter YF from a 1969 200 mount to my intake? If so, are all the throttle linkages the same? I am trying to get a better system without too many side effects and modifications. Any help would be appreciated.

All the 200 manifolds are the same size. Than the 250 intake manifold had a larger opening for the carburetor.

Info: You can't change the intake. Carb is fine, but may have to go to a cable throttle. It will pull 187cfm on 200CI. Get the Duraspark setup for a 78 Fairmont. Even the dummies at the parts store can find that vehicle on their computer.
