Tension screws for old peugot

I have an old Peugot road bike, that I belive is a 1979 but I cant determine the model, its black with red orange yellow and white stipes on it and a checkerboard off of the P of Peugot., however it has the tension screws with springs on them to tension the rear wheel which seems to have been converted to quick release im assuming. Two questions here

One: Should I be changing the wheels back to bolt on/

two: does anyone have those tension screws, mine are bent to all get out.

Thanks

brad

Are you talking about the little screws in the rear drops? If so, these are not tensioning screws. They are used to position the rear wheel in the drops.

Just keep trying to unscrew them. If they are bent, screw them until they just reach the bend. Straighten the bend as best you can and continue to unscrew. I have never failed to remove a set of these guys, providing that I exercise patience when attempting to do so.

Hope this is a help.

Quick release. If you have a Peugeot with those adjusters it's not a low end model.

You can get them at veloorange.com and lots of other places. They're not necessary, but they're nice to have.
