It is in the narrow area in front of the windshield, more toward the drivers side in a black box a littl bigger than a pack of cigarettes.

There is no adjustment as it is self regulating. The idle speed warm should be about 500rpms. When cold I think the setting was 750rpms. One could tell it that it was cold.
