Motobecane Carb Interchangeability

Can I use a Gurtner carb off a '79 Motobecane 50V on my '77 Motobecane 50L? The carbs look basically the same but with some minor differences in the casting. The 50V carb had a cable connected at the bottom of the carb that my 50L carb doesn't have.

I would say yes. The intake manifold should be same size, so there won't be any problems with it fitting. The cable coming from the bottom is probably a different choke system for that carb.
