I do have nice in-lines installed, though I did remove them when these problems arose.
I will recheck floats as best I can, put pilot jets back & try her again in the next day or three.

There is no pilot cap screw for the '80s carbs, is there? Because there are definitely none. The pilot jets are exposed for easy retrieval with a screwdriver.

Thank you for the seasoned advice.
I do have the '80s carbs with one inlet to #1-2 and one inlet to #3-4. So I should just watch and see if fuel flows? Do I need to take anything on the carbs apart?...
