Yes - I did that switch on my 72B. Mostly because I had a decent rebuilt 
set from a 71BGT to use and I am very familiar with the HS4s and no 
experience with the HIF carbs. I did use the HIF carbs for at least a 
few months or so before removal  and they did seem to have some 
advantages, in particular in cold weather starting as I recall.

Now that I have several MGs (67BGT, 72B, 64B), I am giving some thought 
to putting the HIFs back in the 72B this winter, granted I am also 
currently rebuilding the 67BGT.
