WC High RPM's

My old WC has startrd running at high RPMs. I don't know exactly how fast because I haven't put a tackometer to it. One day I was mowing the yard for over an hour. It has had a belly mower unit for over 30 years. When I shut it off that day after using it, everything sounded and worked just fine. The next time I went to start it with a normal procedure of putting the throttle completely ahead, it started just fine. The only problem was the RPM's were very high. Anyone would recognize this immediately. From a visual inspection everything seems to be okay. There are no broken or missing pieces in the linkage. I have been running it at about half throttle and it seems to work okay. It seems like the governor is working akay and it has plenty of power. I have had this tractor for over 50 years and this is the first time I have been stumped. Can anybody give me any suggestions for starters. PS--I have not taken the front cover off the governor.

I don't think I would start it again until I checked the govenor weights. Could be a broken one and when that happens it sounds like a jet engine.If that is the case check the side play in the governor shaft as it can slop around in there and break a weight.
