No speed controls?

No speed controls?

Just bought an older craftsman 6.0HP Eager-1 mower at a yard sale. Overall condition is fair and I think a little carb work, a new air filter and a plug should get it running. I noticed that there are no engine speed controls or cables. The sears on-line exploded drawings also do not show speed controls for this. Mower chassis is model 917.388360 and engine is 143.006200. Is this normal? One speed only - no fast/slow option? I see ACE has generic speed controls...

Just a money saving thing really. Cheaper carb, no controls,
mower should be used at top speed anyway.
