bought one off of ebay that was supposed o be 82 or 83 and it was a 80 or 81........Idle circuit is different....... It can be made to work but the idle will never be as smooth as it should be due to different air bleed sizes. So far I haven't seen one for my 83 on there.

I though all 80 - 83 carburetors were same execpt 83 had the screw in idle jet screw where 80-82 were press in.

that is correct but after I received the one I bought off of ebay and realized what I had I emailed Randakk's and ask him about using it. He says that they will work but because of the different size air bleeds in the idle circuit that you will never get the idle to be as smooth as it should be. I may end up having to use it but I would really like to get the correct carb if I can find one.
