You would think there must be a reed valve arrangement somewhere to stop blowback and the oily fuel would probably require different jetting and porting.

well i'll tell ya now 99.9% sure your 4 stroke carb wont mod for your 2 stroke and vice versa, like wally said porting size, throttle plate size, floatbowls and even mounting probably wont match, that 2 stroke breaths much much quicker than the 4, so i could imagine the differences are tremendous
