Cable would be adjusted at the carburetor end of cable, where it clamps to the housing. Loosen the clamp, move the outer housing back and reclamp the housing, move it in small increments!

There is no adjustment for the cable. It goes directly to the throttle which goes into the housing. I think it's not that cable that is the problem, because it pulls the throttle all the way it can go. There is an automatic choke that seems to be the problem, I can't leave it partially open long enough for the engine to properly warm up. So when the choke is all the way closed, the engine sputters out

Rpm can be increased by increasing the tension on the throttle spring. You want choke fully open!
