Default Throttle Adjustment on Honda Harmony II?

I have a Honda Harmony II mower. It's three years old now, and not getting
full power to the wheels. On even slight uphill inclines I have to push a
little. I notice that if I pull sideways on the exposed part of the
throttle cable, the drive zips right along, so I guess the cable must be
loose or stretched. Is there a way to adjust it? I'd rather not tear it
apart myself unless I know it can be done. TIA!

Did you read the manual? My Harmony 215 has a section on adjusting
the safety clutch cable, drive clutch cable, etc.

Also, sounds like this may be a clutch issue, rather than a throttle
one. Is the engine running at full speed while this is happening?

Chet,
Thanks for the reply. You're right, it's the clutch cable. I was using the
wrong term. When I pull the exposed part of the clutch cable sideways, it
zips right along. My manual doesn't say anything about any cable or lever
adjustments. If yours has something fairly brief, would you mind posting?
TIA!
