Governor Adjustment on Techumseh - 5 HP HSSK50

I got a Craftsman 22" snowblower (536886141) on craigslist this past weekend. I've put a new carboratuer on it, along with a gasket, spark plug, fresh gas, and unseized the rusted augurs from the auger shafts. I did a leakdown test, it has around 15% loss. When it idles it seems to hunt a lot, especially when under load. I adjusted the high speed RPM to be screwed all the way in, then 4.5 turns out.

I found a video with the same engine and realized my governor linkage isn't in the same position as what's in the video: watch?v=norb3QPKiGs

Here's mine: watch?v=QLiE6cAfV8k

Does the engine seem to be running too slow or fast? I have a tachometer coming in the mail to check.
