Cleaning needle and seat ?

I've noticed that my carb is dripping from the primaries when the boat is shut off. I searched a few threads and have decided to clean the needles and seats. I have never done this and would like some insight or pics showing what i need to remove from the float bowl and clean. I have replaced power valves before, but have never went any further into a carb. My basic worry is that i will not reinstall them properly and cause problems. The boat is a 1989 MC TriStar 190 351ci Indmar w/4160 Holley. I recently changed the fuel pump and line and this problem developed. I believe that some trash might have gotten in when i swapped the parts. Thanks in advance for any help.
