For some reason the throttle linkage is binding or is gummed up preventing it's free movement which also prevents it from responding to the governor properly resulting in your overspeed incidents.
You could try spraying the outside of the carburator with carburetor cleaner from a parts store like NAPA or checker auto but I like using Brake cleaner for the same purpose as it's a tad more powerful in disolving the nasty stuff away and it does absolutely dry up totally. Both of these products come in a pressureized spray paint type of can and with nozzles so you can get right onto the gummy parts and clean them out. Move the throttle open and closed with your finger as you clean the carburetor to ensure that the throttle no longer sticks open or shut.
