WTK: Adjusting Idle Speed for Techumseh 6.5HP

My Crafstman branded Techumseh is idling way too high. I recently cleaned the carb and now it runs, but sounds like it's a few RPM's too high (scary).

This is the non diaphram carb. There doesn't appear to be any adjustment screws ...

Can you move the throttle shaft by hand and slow it down? Sounds like the throttle shaft in the carb is just stuck.
