Well it's nearly twenty years old so I guess its a good time to pull the carbs and clean them good. They came out ok, hope i can get them back in. Anyone got any experience or tips they would like to share about this.

I think your only the second person that I have ever heard of cleaning the carbs on a 1500, usually running carb cleaner or seafoam in the gas every once in awhile keeps them clean. Good luck.

re cleaning

Thanks for the reply. Well, now that I have them out its looking pretty intimidating. is there anyone that specializes in getting these apart and going thru them. The shop manual does have the procedure, but I might be getting in over my head. The slides definitely need to be cleaned as they are not sliding cleanly, but they are easy to get to without dismantling the carb pair. It's the floats, needles and jets that require the whole show.
