The only thing that will come out will be the spring that sets on top of the vacuum pistn and the underside of cap.

The spring sets over the stem in the center of the piston and also a seat in the cap. Its easy to put back together.

the carbs must be installed from the left side of the bike and you also need to remove the coolant pipe on top of the engine, the left side only.

They slide in very easly. That being said if its your first time doing it it may seem impossible. Dont get frustrated and don't get rammy. Go slow and think it thro .
Kinda a bit like learnning to ride a bicycle.

No. I would check the o rings and make sure they are pliable and smear a little vaseline on them and torque them down. Thats how I did mine and they sealed up fine.

No sealant Al it isn't needed. Some grease or Vaseline will keep the o rings from falling out while you bolt the manifolds down.
