I just bought a 1979 gl 1000, was wondering if the 1500 carbs would fit and work.

Highly unlikely. I doubt they would fit, they have six header pipes instead of four, and they are jetted and tuned for a 1500cc six-cylinder engine, not a 1000cc four-cylinder. You might get it to run, but not very well.
