Mark everything, BEFORE you remove it (especially the ignition wires). 
Pay special attention to the different sizes of the bolts. I would not 
worry so much about leaving the linkage connected to the carbs, 
especially if they need to be balanced. Make sure you have the proper 
fuel flare nut wrenches, and a 1" wrench if you loosen the fuel lines. I 
would be very careful about the top heater hose. You might want to leave 
that attached to the cover, or you should plan on replacing it depending 
on how long it's been on the engine.
