Drain screw has a bigger diameter. This two small pieces I found in the bottom of my ultrasonic cleaner after cleaning rear carb and Suzuki petcock. It doesn't look from petcock, so it has to be from carb. But I don't know, if I didn't pour into a drain this two from front carb. They wasn't there during assembling. :-\

I have small problem: Does anybody know, if this small o-ring and washer are from carbs? Diammeter is same as in pilot screw (pos.62), but Iím not sure.

Yes they are for the pilot screw. When you removed the screw, I'm guessing the spring fell out but washer and O-ring stayed in the carb body. Assemble the spring on the screw, then the washer followed by the O-ring.

Oh, and the picture you showed on the previous post are '82 carbs. Why not just use them?

Yup Rikugun, Looks like a late 82 carb with upgrade top for vacuum flapper. 
Not an 83, they have outlets by the chokes
