Carb conversion ?

I just picked up a 6-71 blower setup that has 2 750 Holley DP's that are setup for E85 with it. There is no such thing as E85 where I live so I will have to convert them back to gas. I know I will need new metering blocks, I will have to boost reference them and probably re-jet the carbs. I may also have to change the power valves, I won't know until I get them apart.

Is there anything else I will need to do?

I know that these were originally gas carbs that were converted to E85. If some of the passages were made bigger in the main body will that make a difference when switching back to gas?
