See service manual link below, starting with page 26 , for the governor linkage.

ok, I believe that i have the correct parts, however ther are no springs that i can find
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

oK, did you down load the manual? Springs cn be universal, if you can determine where to add spring. Lowes and Home Depot carry assortment of springs.

I did download the manual but the diagram that looks like my setup doesnt show any springs. I have been searching the internet for week trying to figure out where to put one
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Typical spring location is to apply tension against the governor link.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
in which direction? Should the spring be trying to open the throttle or close it?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Close it.
