The idle adjust knob by the gas cap, correct?

The adjustment linkage is just a wire wound plastic sheathed length of cable attached to the idle adjustment screw at the base of carbs. It should have resistance when turning the knob if no resistance felt then yes something is broken or could have been unscrewed from the carb body and would require carb removal for replacement/reinsertion if the spring (unlikely) is still there.
This is what I do
