Lol what's the plan with these then Jon?
Is it just a clean up ??
The hardest part is getting the throttle cables back on when you refit them :-)

Jon just take a few pics as you go along and keep everything from each carb together in the float bowls when you remove it.
If you are methodical and keep everything clean and tidy its not difficult to fully strip them.
Just dont separate each individual carb from the bank as it can be a pain putting them back together.
Remember there is the opposite end as well with the diaphrams and slides, this is more difficult than the float bowl side.
Plenty of carb cleaner and your good, keep WD away from the rubber seals as it can make them swell up and go out of shape.

Good advice there from stug.... :thumbsup

Also when you do the other end, put a smear of grease on the rubber to hold it in place when replacing the cover !biggrin
