Lawnmower runs at high rev

My Birggs and Stratton 4.o HP, model 10A902, Type 2291-B1 lawnmower runs at a high revolution after I cleaned the carburetor and other parts.
How can I verify if the high rev is normal?
Thank you.

sounds like maybe you don't have governor hooked up right.

Did you remove the governor springs? If so that is your problem. It should look like the pic below. Have a good one. Geo
