I pulled my carbs to clean them and reinstalled them. Now I cant get over 80 and from 50 to 80 i get tons of stumbling and hesitation. I seen where someone mentioned carb boots being cracked. Well mine werent cracked but on the inside of the boots there is a lip that the carb fits onto. I am wondering if air could be getting sucked in there and not getting vacuum through the carb to pull fuel and highway speeds? Since this problem started when i pulled the carbs im hoping this would create a vacuum leak. Tell me oh GREAT ones what you think. Thanks and God Bless

It could be a leak source. you could put a thin bead of permatex silicone in the recess area & re mout your carbs. Let it set for a day before starting so it wont suck any silicone into the intake. Than make sure you clamp them in nice & snug.

I don't think it would leak or at least leak enough to bother anything once the clamp is on and tightened. As Hatchetman said, use some sealant on it if it makes you feel better but I don't think this is your problem.

If you disassembled your carbs, Then i think the reassembly is not correct

somewhere.

You will prob have to repull them to find what is wrong

I hope from that pic it doesn't indicate that you separated the boots from the manifold tubes, which is a no no unless you're able to obtain new ones. Take them loose from the carbs only once the clamp is loosened.
