When Uncle Max rebuilds the the carbs, they work. Don't worry about adjusting them. I set the back carb with a closed throttle and the front alittle open for an idle. I also lile the Banjo fuel fittings. They make a fool proof system for delivering fuel to the carbs, and look nice as well. After you get the engine running, with a fast idel, drive it hard for at least a coupls dizen miles or more. Now you can worry about syncing them (waist of time) depending on the cam set the idle so you can drive it in the city traffic. After a while you might want to install an AF meater fo fine tuning for power and economy
