Two Cycle Governor Problems

Engine runs wide open....the governor arm does not move to close the throtle at all. If I manually move the arm the RPM 's are steady and clear...the arm stays in full open there something inside that could be broken??

Engine in question is a Tecumseh HSK 845 Two Cycle on an MTD Snow Blower.

If the throttle shaft is not varnished (frozen) in place then it likely is an internal problem with the governor.
