Troy-Bilt w/Tecumseh HMSK 80-110 engine. Where can I get a repair manual covering the carburetor OR a picture showing carb linkages?

There are a couple of reasons this could be happening.
1- The throttle shaft could be frozen or gummed up where the throttle shaft sits in the carburetor body.
2 - Check the top of the throttle shaft where the shaft meets the plate, if it is loose or separated it will not allow the throttle plate to move.
3 - The governor spool may be damaged internally in the engine.
Added a couple of Tecumseh manuals below.

I need the linkage diagram for a 20 hp briggs and statton model 407777-0167

Besides the service manual you can view parts diagrams at a dealer like You can purchase the service manual at a dealer and it will show you how to hook it up.
The throttle linkage hooks up to the throttle shaft closest to the engine. the governor spring attaches the governor arm to the throttle linkage.
The choke cable attaches to the shaft farthest from the engine. I hope this helps.
PS your engine has two factory service bulletins on it.

Anthony, this could be from the governer linkage which is intended for maintaining a specified top rotation per minute speed ( R.P.M ) is a possability im not sure of your specific adjustment procedure allthough most are a simple lossening of the linkage mounting to the shaft bolt while this bolt is loose you push the linkage to full throttle travel activation allowing the control linkage that was lossened to turn in its mount ( pivot) and keeping the threw the block mounting at full activation range ( travel ) in its farthest position re tighten the arms securing bolt,to secure it at its proper activation range ( at the pivoting point) I hope this helps if your unfamiliar with this type of governer control linkage, i would seek to locate a diagram on line that you can view to assist in your specific engine's linkage adjustment , and another possability is your carbuerator's High speed needle valve is to lean or to rich hope you analysis the problem Steve

1997 Dodge Ram Van gas pedal stuck almost had wreck?

I honestly don't see how changing the computer could cause this - I would first suspect a broken return spring on the throttle body. With the engine off, trace the gas pedal's linkage (or cable) back to the point where it attaches to the engine (throttle body or carbuerator if not fuel-injected). There will be a shaft it attaches to on the throttle body (or carb). Disconnect the linkage at this point and try to rotate this by hand, it should snap back when released. If it does, you probably have a 'frozen' cable which needs replaced. Don't forget to replace the linkage where you removed it now. If it doesn't, look for a 'missing spring' on the throttle body's side or any place the linkage appears bent or could 'snag' on anything. If the attachment point doesn't rotate smoothly or 'binds', or kind of 'wobbles' in it's holes the shaft bushings need replaced or the shaft is bent and needs rebuilt. While your'e there, regardless, you should take some 3-in-1 oil and lightly lubricate any points where the shaft, cable, or linkages touch any other part.
