    just put the carbs back on and now gas is leaking from the banjo bolt and the large plastic screw in the bottom of the carb, does this mean new gaskets or could it be the floats?

    At the banjo housing at the bottom there should be a plastic and gauze filter that the housing seals on check that this is in place and make sure it's not cracked, the plastic screw where you drain the carbie might be shot, the threads tend to stretch or wear over a period of time if they have been overtightened.
