Briggs 18hp governor adjustment

I have a briggs horizontally opposed twin ll that wasn't running right. After a lot of checking I found the nut was missing where you tighten the governor arm to the shaft allowing the shaft to turn out of adjustment. I replaced the nut but could someone tell me how to correctly adjust the arm to the shaft?

Thank you!!

With the nut (you mentioned was missing) loose, turn the governor shaft counter-clockwise as far as it will go (easy does it here) and move the throttle linkage to the wide-open-throttle position (also counter-clockwise) and tighten the nut.
