No more poker runs... Head gasket kablooey...

I just remembered that this was what I did last time.  I left the cables 
attached until I had the entire carb rack removed from the bike (I was 
re-jetting) and then reattached the cables before installing the carbs.  Too 
bad I didn't remember to do the same with the fuel line.  I had to pull the 
carbs a second time to attach that.

The only way I've found yet Tom is the hard one... pulling the carbs
entirely, turning them over and installing the darned thing with them loose
on the bench. When I put the carb bank back in it looks like I'm shoving an
octopus into a coffee can, but it worked ok last time. ;-)
