Yes you need to drain the oil, turn the engine onto its flywheel, remove all the crankcase screws, clean the exposed crank to remove any rust or dirt, now gentlty ease the base off, it should come away with the oil pump gear.

I have a husky tractor with 23hp briggs the oil was full of gas in crank case

I have had this problem several times. On the models that have the gas tank mounted behind the dash and gravity allows the gas to drain into the crankcase because the needle valve in the carb don't shut off tight enough.I have had them hydrolock the engine with gasoline in the cylinder.Remove spark plug to clear it out. Be Careful as it will be like a car wash when you turn it over and if it sparks anywhere it can burn it to the ground.Been there done that, good thing it was a metal hood. After cleaning the carb I install a fuel shut off valve and a filter in the gas line. I have noticed a few tanks mounted under the seat when full will drain into the crankcase to about half a tank. Most of the needle valves in the carb have a rubber tip and the rubber gets hard if gasohol or any alcohol is used.

The govenor rod cannot be adjusted. The springs are intact. Motor revs up but will not idle down. It is 23 HP.

Just guessing here, but if there is no control of the throttle and the engine over revs, then more than likely the governor control is broke. Briggs if famous for that problem. Governor is around 25 dollars and a lower crankcase gasket. Requires the engine to be pulled, lower crankcase removed, remove all pieces of old governor and then re assemble with new governor and gasket.////Before doing all this check that both springs are on the governor on the exterior of motor. If you manually hold the governor arm back, counterclockwise, and it still revs, then you need to replace governor. Don't let it rev for long or it with throw a pushrod or worse. good luck
