adjusting the thermostat

i went out and started the genset and while i was out there i thought i would try the furnace. i set it on 75 and after about 10 min. it was almost 85 by the thermostat but when i turned it back it kicked off at 65. im wondering how to adjusting the thermostat so it reads the right temp.
here are a couple pics of the thermostat. the first pic is with cover on and secound is cover off.

Some thermostats had a contact pointer that could be moved on contact strip marked in + or - degrees. Do not see it on yours.
Maybe you can find a digital one that works on 12v's, it would be more accurate.

thanks 007
i went out this morning before work and was looking at it again and noticed that there is a set screw or something that can ce seen in the second pic.
here is a close up of it.



i thought it was a allen head but it not, takes a small screw driver.
do you think or anyone else think that may be the way to adjust it ?
i looked online but didnt find anything

That black block maybe a magnet to close contact or is a contact that may need to be cleaned, try some adjustments of screw and see if it changes anything.

UPDATE
i found out how to make the thermostat read the right temp.
on the back of the cover is a white plastic slot as seen here,



all you have to do is get the temp inside and put a small screwdriver in the slot and set it as seen here,


after i did this i ran the furnace for about 20 mins. and checked the temp and it read 65.
