i have no idea what kind of shape that carb or your ignition system is in.. You mention 12 mph but nothing about engine RPM.. if the engine revs high and runs OK, watch the variator and see if it expands and contracts. If not, you are stuck in 'low' gear.

And assuming everything else mentioned in other responses (ignition, muffler, etc) is in good condition, idle adjustments on a healthy, clean carb are simple and accurate. So my guess is your carburetor may have internal issues.
