Clean the entire fuel system, tank and the carbs save the kits for last effort.
Maybe change the lines and check the petcocks for little bits of rubber and crud and hang the fuel filters low so as to act as a sediment bowl.
Just for fun pull the float bowls without draining them and see what's in them floating around on the bottom. Might want to leave them sit for some time to let the little bubbles of water collect/settle so you can see them.
