Vintage Suntor Adjusters

I have two Raleigh Mixtie frames with Suntor rear drop outs which have very small threaded adjusters in them. Each adjuster is spring loaded and has a knurled knob on the outside which moves the adjuster back and forward. The other end is set up to be turned with either a flat blade or cross head screwdriver.
I am stripping one of the frames for parts to use on the other and would like to know how these adjusters can be removed, if at all. If they cannot be removed where can I get repacements or could I do without them enitirely? They cannot have any effect on chain tension sso I assume they are to set the wheel square between the stays.
I will also put this on the vintage thread as this query may be more appropriate there.
