**open the **
little brass drain screws on the bottom of the carbs open fuel tap to prime and let the petrol run through for roughly 15 seconds lock it up after draining, this unleaded crap tends to go off very quickly and it dries up in the carb bottom causing all kinds of mayhem with the floats, if itgets stuck behind the needles on the floats any overflowing can be cured with a good rap with a screw driver handle. good luck if that doesnt work its cabs off for a blow through, it may start up and eventually pull the other carbs into sequence.
