Balancing carbs

I had seen some discussion of carb balancing before the forum moved over here, but I had never found a full "how to" on it. Can someone point me towards one?

I found lots of info on making my own tuning tool with ATF & clear Hose. Just wasn't sure where I was hooking the hose up to and what I was adjusting.

There is a Philips screw on each intake next to the cylinder head that acts as a vacuum port when the screw is removed. As part of your home-made apparatus, you would need some sort of adapter on the end of your hoses that will screw in to that port. As Shep says, you may also have to experiment with restrictors to get a measurable amount of vacuum.
