I have adjusted the carburetor and governor. It seems to still rev high.
Is this a good question?
Is there a reason for adjusting carb settings? Most small engines are factory adjusted requiring little to no adjustment when used within design configurations. Periodic maintenance requires air filter cleaning or replacement, plug and oil changes. When storing away for several months, draining fuel from the tank and carb can prevent ethanol corrosion or adding fuel stabilizer then running the engine for a few minutes to allow stabilizer to coat metals against corrosion effects of ethanol in gasoline.
Some carburetors have tamper caps over adjustment screws to prevent meddling and creating pollution from incorrect adjustments. If this engine isn't serviced at the end of a season and just stored away, the carburetor may have built up deposits and corrosion requiring a removal and tear down to clean all passages.
