motor running crazy

Hey I have a 18hp kohlar opposing twin. All I did was take the carburetor off and clean it. I took out both set screws out and replaced them . Then put it back on and now the motor seems to have no control over the governors. It will idle down but when you put it up to the notch to mow the motor runs wide open ughhh could use some help

Sort of sounds like either a linkage is incorrect, or when the linkage was loose, the governor gear fell off the shaft in the engine.
