MTD 8hp Tecumseh Snowthrower Governor

I have an MTD snowblower equipt with a Tecumseh 8 hp 4 stroke engine, the motor will rev like a Nextel cup engine as though the governor is not pulling back on the throttle, everything is attached and free, it knows no limit, i'm not sure if this set up uses a return spring of any kind but no springs are attached,

You may find some diagrams and info in this manual, http://www.cpdonline.com/692509.pdf

Much more detail than I could scribe here

you da man Azis,

I made an adjustment to the governor arm as directed in the online manual that you posted and all is good with the speed control, now it seems to surge and I plan to clean the carb next, sure was nice to clean snow today, we got hammered in Chicago,

thanks for the help,
