Techumseh Engine - No power

Wondering what would cause engine to lose power? Engine was running fine and then all of a sudden went down to idle speed. I recently cleaned the carb and jets so I don't think that's the problem. Doesn't seem like it's choking for air; just running slow. Thought the governor lever moved back but it's in full open position.

I'm at a loss. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks,

Can you open the throttle plate by hand and make it rev up?

What is the engine on? Walk behind mower? If so, you probably hit a rock or stump and broke the flywheel key knocking the timing way out of wack. Either check it yourself or have a shop check it.
