Push mower revs too high with throttle just open (or a little higher with the throttle opened more). Revs stay high until throttle reduced to cutout point.

are you sure you have the right spring fitted?? and have you tried adjusting the spring tension? you can do this by bending the arm that the govenor spring attaches to as seen in this picture

How do I correct the motor from pulsating

Sounds like the govenor is messed up. Check the springs on the carb linkage, maybe one of the little springs has come off or broken.

How do you assemble the two springs on a sprint 375 briggs and stratton ?

The ends of both springs hook at the loop of the metal linkage connecting the governor vane and throttle shaft. The other end of the small spring hooks onto a small upright plate approximately 1 inch towards to the front of hooked end of the spring. The longer spring hooks onto a large hole in the throttle plate.
A problem that does occur is the plate becomes bent when the mower us pushed under shrubs. This drops the speed of the mower to a low idle. If this is the case then with a pair of pliers, gently twist that metal plate to obtain a RPM setting of 3,100. Don't be tempted to increase the revs to much or the conrod will break and punch a hole through the engine block.

How do i fix the pull start and re tension it so cord retracts?

You take the top of the motor off with the starter, then rewind the spring,then is a good idea to replace the rope with a new one they sell rope at a lawnmower store, get 5 feet or more if the rope is up on the handle, take a piece of rope with you to get the correct size.

Engine when started, runs over RPMs that it's designed for

The spring acts as an engine govenor, i would say the spring is not connected properly, if you have too much tention on the spring you will increase the revs.

The engine on my Sprint 375 floods when trying to start

Check the float in the carb. bowl for gumming and clean your carb.. If you haven't done so already. Or you can try running a fuel treatment through your fuel. That may help you with your flooding issues. Good luck.
