Hey I took off the carb of my '78 400t and the ait to cab side seem to rotate fine. but the carb tot engine side (The throttle i think) is pretty stiff. I'm not sure is there is anything I could do to get it moving nicely? I used PB blaster / carb cleaner to free the other side (airbox to car).

If you dipped the carbs in a bucket of carb cleaner to clean them the shafts may have lost any lubrication. A couple of drops of oil on the inside where the shaft goes thru should free those up if that's the problem. It could be the cables. You should be able to pull and push each cable with 2 fingers or if removed then the cable should slide very easily

Did you reposition the throttle grip? If it's on too far, it can 'bind' by the rubber grip fouling on the bar end.
