Honda EM5000s generator

My generator is delivering 56-57 hertz where it should be delivering 60. I believe the idle speed is too low. Does anyone know where the idle adjust screw is on this generator

I can't help you on the location of the speed control but will suggest that you do your checks and make your adjustments under load..

The idle screw is usually a black plastic screw positioned horizontally near the top of the carburetor.
