I have successfully used (blue) threadlocker chemical (Loc-Tite, etc.) for
this application. I don't peen them anymore. Screws remain reusable.
     I think if your carb is reassembled, this may be your ONLY option
besides disassembling the carb.

Subject: <VV> Peening throttle plate screws

I just rebuilt my first pair of carbs and installed a new throttle
shaft with new screws. I have the carbs back together already, and
would like to know how to "peen" the throttle plate screws. Preferably
without taking them apart again. Or is there a better way to secure
them? Note that the head of the screw faces down into the manifold.
