Maybe it's just the rubber seals on the shafts? Have you taken them  
apart enough to check?

I went to do the shaft bushings on my ZS carbs one time and found that  
they have rubber seals that can be replaced.

I'd like to give a testimonial for ZS carbs.

I went to look for my ZS jet adjusting tool to take on the road trip  
to VTR this year and saw it was broken Then I realized it had broken a  
couple years ago which meant I'd totally forgotten about it and more  
to the point that I hadn't had to adjust the carbs all that time  
(around 11,000 miles or so). I'm at altitude (Denver) so the elevation  
changes usually involve 5000 ft. when I drive to places like Jekyll  
Island, Galveston, and San Rafael. Constant depression carbs work  
given a fighting chance. Plugs are a nice milk chocolate color too.  
Once you get them right they are great carbs, both for the road (28  
mpg for 2600 miles) and autocross (faster than a TR6 with a LS  
corvette engine) on this last trip.
