    I tried this and it didn't work. it revied very high. I'm thinking I have the spring that attaches to the govenor lever on wrong or something.

    OK, I posted the wrong picture but the adjustment procedure is the same on your engine.

    If the governor is adjusted properly,
    THIS is what you need to adjust;
