    Work from the Port side (exhaust) of the ski and reach over the motor and under the intake manifold to access the 6 nuts. Should be a 12 mm stubby open ended wrench for removal... Will be tight with all of the fuel lines and loom along the starboard side. Remove or move as much as possible to aid in access.

    I have used a regular Craftsman 12mm combination wrench. Its longer than a stubby and lets you get more torque on the bolt. Remember to pull the wrench toward the back of the ski to loosen them. Its easy to get confused working upside down.

    Ok thanks, I got em off no problem with a stubby. But now im not so certain I have the correct carbs on it. I believe the 1996 slt 780 should have mikuni sbn 38 but I dont have any way to verify that they are.
