Yes I would replace gaskets and O-Rings when the carbs are apart. When you go in, make sure and clean them right the first time, don't want to do this twice.

Got parts ordered and they shipped today.
The stock horn sounds a little wimpy so ordered a louder one to boot.

Some parts made it, but some are coming on a slow boat from Japan.

When I changed the air filter I noticed a little box on the side. I looked at it and I think put my finger in it. Later looked it up and it's a sub air filter.. There was no element in it so I ordered one. Today I  decided to put the element in. There was a gooey substance in there that I  think may be the source of my problem. Used carb cleaner and brake cleaner with an old toothbrush to clean up the sub air filter box. Now at least I have a sub air filter.

If it is what I think those filters always deteriorate, we cut new filters out of filter material to put back in, that will not be your issue.

I was thinking that I may have dislodged a piece of that goo since changing the air filter preceded the problem.

That sub-air filter element is so dense I don't see how any air gets though it. I think some engineer laughed when that design was accepted.
Parts should be here today, so I can get to it this weekend.

Many times you will find pieces of the air filter in the carbs inside the slider IIRC.

Got the carb assembly loose, after much care and patience. I will definitely seal the air filter box on reassembly. Sprayed the assembly with carb cleaner. Will get to the disassembly next. But it is Christmas eve. Merry Christmas everybody.

Clogged low range jets and one clogged main jet.

Great to find the problem!

Just make sure all passages and even the jets that do not looked clogged, clean them, run something through there to get any film off the walls.

Yep, definitely used my carb brushes, cuz I paid five bucks for 'em. But they were worth it.  :)
Saw that filter residue in the sliders.
Am now in the reassembly process. Taking my time to get it right.

I had thought ethanol put an end to clogged jets. The bowls and everything were clean, well compared to the gum and varnish of the sixties and seventies.
