Help With Kohler CV740 Over rev Problem

CV740 on a Cub Cadet, I was mowing along then the PTO shut off and the engine started overreving like there was no governor, I shut it down and started it back up and I have no throttle adjustment but wide open, All springs apear to be in place all linkage are conected. I placed another spare spring pulling on the opposite side connected to the governor spring arm pulling the governor spring (Expanding it) to get temporary control of the throttle untill i fix it.

Im stumped everything seems to be in place...

Check/adjust the governor first, If that doesn't solve the issue check the throttle plate in the carb and make sure it's still in place (screws didn't vibrate out).

If the above is good the governor inside the crankcase likely slung apart......

Remove engine then sump/pan and replace the gear assembly, You have to be careful going back together and mesh the oil pump gear and governor gear or damage can occur......
