Carb Rebuild - Special Tools or Tips?
I've got my rebuild kit from Randakks as well as Howard's book. I've been going over my Honda service manual and I'm just about set to tear into this project. Can anyone suggest any special tools that I might need to make life easier? I picked up a sync tool from Morgan Carbtune, so that is out of the way. I've also got some screen sieves and a large roasting pan from the local dollar store so I can boil the carbs in distilled water to get them cleaned up. Any other special goodies I should need?

:YMPRAY: Please feel free to wish me luck.

A very good investment of time and money is to buy and view (more than once)
Randakk's Honda GL1000 Carb Rebuild Video

Although Randall Washington (aka Randakk) rebuilds a GL1000 carb in the movie, his systematic approach and practical suggestions (none of them expensive) are classic for rebuilding to ANY carb. He goes over the does and don'ts, and emphasizes the important stuff from which parts MUST be replaced to how exactly to check everything against the Honda factory's specs -- and, last but not least, safety all along the way (especially with handling cleaning solvents).

Since you already just bought the Randakk carb kit maybe they'd knock off the ten bucks from the $39.99 which they do if you buy them together.

Oh, and by-the-way, GOOD LUCK!! :YMHUG:

A good set of spectacles and massive quantities of compressed air.
