Troy Bilt Generator Engine Problems

I just got a used 2005 Troy Bilt Generator with a 10 HP B&S Engine 204412-0163-E1. The engine starts and runs fine but only runs at full throttle which we checked today was at 5870rpms. When I took off the top cover I noticed that there were no governor spring or springs connecting to any of the linkage. Does anyone know how many governor springs there are and where they exactly go? I always thought that generator engines were suppose to run at 3600 rpms? Not sure why mine is running high rpms. Thanks

Usually the throttle is stuck, especially on generators, because they sit unused for so long and the gas gums up the throttle shaft while it sits. Can you move the throttle on the carb by hand? Easily? If not, spray it with carb cleaner to cut the gum and work it back and forth until it frees up.
