How do you adjust a carburetor on a 5 hp Briggs and Stratton?

I am trying to do basic maintenance items on my Briggs and Stratton to prepare it for winter and am at a point that I need help.

Adjusting the carb is simple and similar to any older type car carburetor. A regular screw driver and a steady hand is all that's needed with the engine at idle.

there is a set screw on the carburetor. the adjustment should be set to where the motor starts easily and runs smooth at higher rpms.
