I've been talking with several of the local wrenches about the carbs, shave, vac lines, and goat. Here's some items I picked up from them:
- when removing the goat, replace it with a x-over tube.
- when removing the vacuum valve/tubes if needed couple vac lines together if needed to maintain vac hose balance.
- It's more difficult to maintain carb sync if CV carbs don't share the same air box. The shave with filter pods is more cosmetic than functional.
