Did you pull the throttle plates off the shaft?

IF the throttle plate is incorrectly situated in the bore, it can "hang-up", but this situation usually is improperly adjusted cables.........Not knowing what all you've done to the carbs, it's hard to diagnose beyond generalities.......

Well yes I had to replace my throttle shaft and the plate to one side butt I made shure I putt it back just the way I took it off.I then conected the carbs to that little metal bar that conects them. The problem started when I was messing with the choke side of the carb I was bending that little flimzy piece of metal that conects them ,due to when I putt my chocke down one of my plates wasent completly shut so I started squezing that metal closer together to make them both close evenly . I fixed that problem. Butt when gave the other side a test runn on the spring side it wouldt spring back it had a delay affect I would close back slowly

Just because the parts are back in the proper locations does NOT mean they are adjusted or installed correctly.....You should not have required any "bending" to reassemble the carbs....I suspect the throttle plate/shaft is in a smidge crooked and binding....

ok figured out what is causing the issue . the aluminum bracket that connects the carbs together(the one with the four screws) when i screw them together it causes the throttle plates to not spring back

You need to be more specific...... Do you want to remove the tach (The meter on the top tree), the tach drive (part of the engine/camshaft), or the tach cable?

An impact driver is the easiest way to get those 4 Phillips screws out..... You are removing the journal (bearing) for the camshaft, and the rocker arm (tappet) shafts as well, so first, rotate the cam to where no tappet pressure is on any valve and remove the camchain tensioner from the back of the engine ......
