With the four carbs separated I'm now waiting on the rebuild kits. When they arrive I'll rebuild each carb one at a time (so I don't mix up parts). All four carbs are cleaned up (a touch of carb cleaner and a toothbrush got 22 years of grime off) and awaiting some new gaskets, float adjusting and rebuilding. While in there I'll make sure the needles are in good shape and everything has the right geometry.
The first one will be exploratory and slow, by the fourth one I'll be able to rebuild these things in my sleep!

|No lost parts this time - everything labelled and organized.|
