One thing that always drives me crazy is that the Phillips head screws that are on the carbs are always a bitch to get out, especially the one on the float bowls. I always use a pair of Vice-Grips to break them loose.

If you have to remove the cams, before you do get every thing lined up the way it is supposed to go back together with the timing mark on TDC and the cam marks lined up with the top edge of the head. You might see a couple of factory paint marks on the engraved timing marks on the cam sprockets. If they aren't there it might save you some grief if you add them yourself because the little engraved marks are hard to see.
