Tecumseh OHSK120 governor adjustment?

Can anyone confirm if this is the proper procedure to adjust a Tecumseh OHSK120 governor?

I’ve looked through the manual I have and can’t find any detailed instructions.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks

There is a Tecumseh 4-stroke OHV service manual available here:
Tecumseh Service Manuals

The file is "Overhead Valve Engine Manual 1998".

A direct link is:

It has the procedure for adjusting the governor. Sorry, I didn't watch the entire video, but hopefully Tecumseh's instructions will at least give a good starting point.

Thanks!
The video is a little rough to watch. I found the info on page 23 and it’s described exactly the same as in the video. I’ll make the adjustment tomorrow.
