Not that I know a lot about it- but the carb just dumps into the manifold- the 2nd barrel opens when the throttle reaches a certain point to dump more gas and air into the engine- I think that if you want carbs to connect to specific cylinders, you need separate intake manifolds-

They are idle air adjustment screws they dont have any specific. Cylinder feed.
