Putting the carbs back in with the airbox in place is really pretty easy. Tie the airbox to the frame, so it can't drop down, you then have room to get the carbs and intake manifolds back in place. Install the throttle cables before installing the carbs. Spray WD-40 on the manifold that was left on the engine, and on the carb that goes in it. Wiggle the carbs back in place. Then install the 2 carb to airbox ducts back into the airbox. they can be squeezed flat, so it is not hard getting them in. Then untie the airbox and let it drop down. Line up the two rubber ducts with the carbs, again spray everything with WD-40 to make it slippery, and slip them over the carbs. Wiggle the carbs to make sure they are properly seated, then tighten all 4 clamps.
I would suggest leaving the complete air injection system off.
