Governor adjustment on Tecumseh 8HP

I heard different opinions on how to adjust the governing “arm” on a Tecumseh. I know how to adjust the adjusting screw but the “arm” that attaches to the governor is where I have a question.

One version is to move the arm all the way out before tightening. The other version is not fully out, but at a slight angle (fully out may cause it to rev too high). My thinking is it should be all the way out, then adjust the adjustment screw for final tuning. Any thoughts?

Which video is correct???

Interesting, because that is one of the videos I watched (version 1). The other video I watched was:

(about 2:00 minute mark)

I think both guys know their stuff when it comes to these engines. However, they have a difference of opinion on this topic.
I don't want it revving too high to cause damage, but I want it adjusted right. Which one is right???
