I own one, you can adjust it. There are two adjustment screws, one for each jet, but they are hidden behind a seal, you have to drill through a plastic like cap that cover the adjustment screws, email me for more specific details.

How do you install the throttle position sensor on a 83' caprice?

Assuming you have a 305 V8 with a Rochester Quadrajet carb. You will have to pull the carb, and tear it apart. The TPS sits in a groove in the front of the carb body. Buy a carb rebuild kit, watch the Youtube videos on rebuilding quadrajets, and do it. I just rebuilt my carb over the weekend. My 83 Caprice now runs great.

How do you fix my turn signal switch on the steering wheel on a 83 Chevy caprice classic?

In most cases you will need to replace the turn signal switch on the steering wheel for your 1983 Chevy Caprice Classic rather than fixing it. To replace it, remove the horn pad and then use a steering wheel puller and compressor to remove the steering column. You will then remove the signal along with the wiring harness and bus fuses. Replace the signal and wiring and then replace the steering column itself.
