Post the model and type numbers off the engine so we can see exactly what throttle control assembly you have.

Behind the throttle control plate is a spring, One end connects to the governor arm on the engine the other connects to a "U" shaped lever on the control assembly. Where the spring connects to the control assembly with the engine off and throttle set at wide open bend that tang to stretch the spring for more RPM's, Then re-start the engine and check RPM's.

First of all make sure your throttle cable is allowing maximum movement of the arm on the engine. If not, adjust the throttle cable. If that is fine, then do what Restrorob said.
