Can you control the speed at the carburetor? While running the engine at the carb, do you feel any push/pull from the governor linkage? Is the governor lever tight on the governor shaft? If no feel. push or pull , the inner governor is broken in the engine. You did verify that the throttle plate is tight on the throttle shaft?
