Each petcock has 2 nipple on it. The one facing forward is the vacuum line, which needs to be connected to to its respective sides intake boot nipple. The petcocks nipple facing into the middle of the bike is the fuel outlet nipple. This is the nipple that is connected to the lower nipple on the carbs.

Clean the petcocks out good and check the diaphragm for any holes. No holes, then you should be good and they should work fine after a good cleaning.
