I bought 2 vacuum gauges at Harbor Freight and followed the very good "How do I do that"guide at the top of the page.(How-To-Articles).4 gauges would have been easier but doable with 2.

Check out: How to synchronize your carburetors

Yes 4 gauges is easiest, but only if the gauges are dead-on calibrated to one another. I found that with cheap Harbor Freight gauges at least, it's easier and more accurate to do it with a single gauge.
