You got to take the bowl cover off the top first. 8 screws I think. You will have to take some of the linkages apart too. Once you get the top loose, just lift off the top of the carb, trying not to tear the gasket. The floats will stay attached to the cover. Can't remember the correct settings off the top of my head though. Sorry
