I cant really offer any real assistance except to add that I rebuilt mine and the bike ran faultlessly for the season but was rough when I started the following season-much disheartened I took a gamble on a 2nd hand set which has so far paid off-something has blocked them and I tried to clear it but failed. Im happy with whats on there-Id say they run a bit rich-but the bike runs better than his has done for some years (Ive had mine since new-same as yours). I do all my own work as I cant blame or doubt anyone. They are not too difficult to get off-the worst job is trying to 'see' the 3.5 mm hex head screws on the inlet stubs. Happy to talk you through it if you fancy a play!

Vapor lock is when the fuel turns to a gas (or vapor) in the lines before getting to the carburetor. I think.
