This is what I was hoping for. I'm just not motivated to re-do the inside of the airframe- I'm going to need to make a new throttle linkage anyway, but that's better then the alternatives. I suppose there is no substitute for actually taking it apart and rotating the reed block. I'm a little nervous about rotating the fuel inlet, so the fuel line will just make a U turn. I will block/ redirect the hole in the cowl so the airstream does not interfere with the carb diaphragm.
Thanks for the help guys-
