Possible to switch to float bowl carb for Tor S200?

I have a couple of Toro S-200's with carb issues. I generally don't mind replacing the diaphragm but wondered if I can swap out to a Chineese float bowl type carb if I can find the same linkage connections for governor, throttle and choke.

Has anyone had experience with doing this?

Seems hard to find the cheaper china carbs with the diaphragm that would be a suitable bolt-on replacement for the current Toro carbs.

Before replacing have you used any Seafoam in them?

I have an original S-200 and use seafoam in the fuel. I will not buy 4 cycle Toro unless its a two stage as the S-200 and the CCR-3000 have yet to fail me and all they have needed is serpentine drive belts and spark plugs.
Try the seafoam, and let it soak and then if they argue like a wet cat remove the fuel bowls and see how much dirt or varnish is in there and then try cleaning the jets with a cutting torch tip cleaner.

Great advice, thanks! I will try seafoam. I rather enjoy (for the time being) tinkering with the internals of the carb but I can't argue that trying Seafoam.

I take it there are no issues with prolonged soaking with Seafoam and the diaphragm carbs, correct?
