Got my old 214 out this weekend. Ended up having to replace carburetor and throttle cable. Now it starts in the choke position but wants to die as soon as I move it. Not sure what needs adjusted or how much.

See numbered page 14 (PDF page 15) of the HR214 service manual. Here's a link:

Getting over a bout with COVID. Finally was able to go give a suggestion a try. Didn’t work. A guy on a different thread suggested give the governor arm a slight turn. Took a few to figure out I have to loosen a nut right beside it to get it to move. Once I did, there really isn’t a lot of adjustment there. Moved it tightened it all back, tried it. Now I have over-rev but still don’t have any turtle or rabbit. Really starting to get frustrated but trying to keep it together because I really want this mower to go and be right.
