Swap KL Carb to downdraft carb

Has anyone converted a KL motor from single updraft Zenith to a single downdraft carb? Thinking could use stock Hercules intake, just flip it over and make adapter to stand carb up straight. Having carb issues and this conversion idea keeps me thinking.

I'd check to make sure it would clear the cover.

if it fits under the cover I would certainly go for it....up draft carbs are a bomb waiting to go off.
