Good for you, you can tell when you have the sensitivity set correctly when after a load change it hunts for the right speed about 2 times before it settles down. More sensitive than that and it will hunt on the speed, slower than than that and it will not change fast to accept load.

The two governor settings are spring tension and the angle the spring pulls on the governor arm. Tension adjusts speed, while the angle the spring pulls on the arm is the sensitivity. The older Onan's you set the speed no load to 62.5hz. I haven't checked a a newer model service manual, but I'd bet it's still the same.

Correct, no load was 62.5
