Default Starting The Flathead

In a couple weeks I will start the flathead for the first time since I heard it run on an engine stand. It ran with original intake and single carb. It now has two Stromburg 97`s rebuilt by uncle max. I will set the points and check on the timing. everything seems to be tight and ready to go. I`ve done single and 4bbl carb adjustments but not sure which carb i should start with or maybe it doesn`t matter. Any other suggestions on this start up I should be thinking about? Thank you.
