Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! This is the diesel engine. What are you doing to manually raise engine above idle? The injection ump body has a link that has to attach to the governor, is this rod attached? Take the cover off the side of the pump and check there. If the link does not move, one of the injector pumps in the pump body may be stuck.
