I will try again here.
1 wire link from the top hole in the governor arm to the throttle on the carb. There should also be a wire link with a spring that goes from the Governor arm to the speed control handle.

Rigid link to the top hole on govenor arm, spring link to second hole. If engine 'hunts', try the 3rd or 4th hole. Each lower hole will take off a few rpm, but make the engine less prone to 'overshoot' the goverened speed.
If you have not disturbed the govenor arm clamp where it fixes to the shaft that goes into the engine, that should be all you have to do if you have, proceed as follows ;-
Assemble as above. With engine OFF, loosen the govenor clamp. Push the end of the govenor arm so the carb throttle is wide open. Whilst holding it there, rotate the shaft in the same direction as the arm would have rotated it if you hadn't lostened the clamp. Ensure it's rotated as far as possible (this removes ant 'lost' movement in the internal govenor mechanism.). Now tighten the clamp and release everything. Push the speed control to FAST. The throttle should open, and it will requirer about 4 OZ of force on the end of the govenor arm to close the carb throttle. This force will be generated by the govenor when the engine is started
Move the speed conrol to SLOW. Most of the tention should disappear, allowing the throttle to close with very lettle pressure on the govenor arm.
If all this behaves as described, you should be safe to start.

Here is a link to a couple of my Tips. And even though they are for weed eaters and such, the same concept applies to your carburetor. The key to carburetor cleaning is the Den Tek Brush!
And depending on how bad your corrosion is, you may end up needing to buy a new carb. Corrosion may keep the parts from moving freely; such as the float.

The fuel pump is part of the carb. It is best to replace the whole thing rather than trying to repair, but your choice and your money. Usually I take digtal photos or at least draw a sketch before tear down of something new so I know how it is supposed to go back together. If you already have it tore down my best suggestion would be to pick up a B & S shop manual and they have some pretty good diagrams in the governors section as to where the linkages should hook up. I've done a bunch of these but can't describe it.
