[urq] Who's got the best BTDT write-up for adjusting door latches and specifically the exterior trigger?

I decided I was sick and tired of having to push on the window frame to get enough door pressure to make the outside trigger latch do anything, so I ordered new latch-pins that screw into the body.  The originals had long ago lost any plastic and were in need of replaced.

So I replaced them last night in the 105deg cool Houston evening.  Only 90% Humidity.  As you might guess my patience did not last long...
I could only get the outside trigger latch to work with the latch-pin set in the outside-most position, resulting in the door not lining up flush with the body.

I presume there must be some internal adjustments on the actuator rods (ala: 5000/200?) that will allow me to put the pin in the correct position, but allow the exterior trigger latch to open the door.  It's worth noting the interior latch works fine no matter where I put the pin.

So what's the best adjustment procedures out there, and is this a no-beer, or drink first until relaxed kind of thing?
