Are you asking where the end of the spring goes?

It connects to the loop on the governor link right where it goes into throttle plate. 9top right arrow on your photo's). I would replace spring pN# 30826, yours looks a little stretched.

I tried putting it there
And set at half throttle, It opens the plate up to WOT
It will go from a couple hundred rpms, to WOT

Trust me, that is where it goes. I would suggest starting with a new spring as I suggested. yours looks like it is stretched and someone may have shortened it which would bring you to wot. If after a new spring you have the same problem i would look at throttle plate sticking or internal governor problem. Spring is less than $3, common part any local small engine shop that sells tec parts should have it.

Oh yea I agree about replacing the spring
Would the throttle cable for slow/fast make it do this if its clamped in the wrong place, (lower right corner of pic)
Oh, and should the governor arm be able to move freely with the engine off?

possibly, the picture shows throttle in slow/off position. connect cable and adjust sheathing so the control is at the slow position and tighten.

yes

Well
I connected the new spring in the right places
the throttle is clamped where it should be
I must have some type of internal govorner problem..

Did you by any chance mess with the governor arm? You may want to do a static adjustment before opening it up.

Here is a good link:
