Just finished synching the carbs on my '82. To me it is more difficult than it needs to be because of those adjuster screws and lock-nuts. You have to push on the screws to turn them because they are slotted screws and it is awkward tightening down the lock-nuts without changing the adjustment.

It would be a lot easier if you had allen, or hex head screws, so you could turn them without pushing on them and with a friction fit so there is some resistance to turning. Maybe a spring under the screw like on carb mixture screws. Then you wouldn't need the lock-nuts.

Has anyone done anything like this? Comments/thoughts?

I have the same problem with my '82. Make an adjustment, lock it down, then realize it moved.... Your idea sounds like a good fix. I think I'll see if I can find long allen head set screws on my next trip to the hardware store!
