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 11 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 11 months ago.

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

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
in which direction? Should the spring be trying to open the throttle or close it?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 11 months ago.

Close it.
