Joe, there is a wheel to tighten the mechanism, but if I tighten it any, it will be too hard to shift. I might think about your 7-speed idea, but I just got a new Suntour Alpha 6-speed freewheel and a nice, Royce 126mm hub, which kind of answers Puget's question. The shifters are set to index, and only slip when I am putting max effort into the pedals. I do not think it is an Accushift freewheel. I never knew there was such a thing.
I think I'll just replace these shifters. Thanks, people.
