govener spring ?

another ? on my 24 h.p. briggs i'm trying to get back together after head replacement, and the spring (small one) came unhooked from some where, on the throttle cable bracket i have a larger spring on the back side its still hooked, but i noticed that there is a small spring that was hanging there i suspected it came from the govenor shaft and hooked to a "tang" at the bttom of the bracket as there is a small hole in both pieces for spring, but when i hooked it that way it leaves the throttle in wot. i was thinking that it might be this way because it will start that way untill the gov. kicks in when it fires am i right or does this spring go somewhere else ? thanks in advance Buck

Yes, the throttle should be at WOT until the engine starts and the governor can assume control.
