WD45 Governor suddenly doesn't work

Hoping someone here has had a similar experience or firsthand knowledge.
I was brush hogging today, and quite suddenly, the RPM's wouldn't hold for the load. Up and down, and would eventually die. I checked fuel, good flow. Could a cotter pin have fallen out somewhere in the linkage? Is there a way to isolate the Governor so that I can limp back to the shop? What should I check?

Thanks!

Sometimes a bad coil will work fine when the engine is cold but act up after it gets warmed up.

I bought an Oliver 66 and when I mounted the cycle mower and started to mow hay on one corner on a down hill it would die. It would start up until I turned on that corner. I found a large flat washer in the fuel tank. It would slide over the fuel outlet going down hill and with the sharp turn would slide away from the outlet. Drove me nuts for several rounds until it didn't slide away and Took the sediment bowl and could poke a dental pick up and make a dribble of gas into a stream of gas. A flashlight and a magnet solved the problem.

Sounds much more like dirt in the carburetor than a governor issue.
