Question about Craftsman Garden
The engine is in the family of VTP195UIGISA with model mumber 143.986504. I need to know the position of the governor shaft and the proper connection of both spring and solid attachments to the shaft from carburator. I have a Tecumseh disk of Service and Repair manuals but it does not include this particular engine. Thank you for any help you are able to give me.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

If it has a float type carb, open it 1.5 turns. If it has a diaphram open it one turn. If it has a Walbro carb, there is no adjustment. Once you get the engine started you may adjust the carb to fine tune. Open until it begins to lose RPM's then close until it starts to lose RPM's. Return to a point between the two. Good luck...Lee

Have a look at this page - it has diagrams and instructions for getting the linkages right:

Sounds like a bent shaft, or bent blade.
Also sounds like the part that holds the blade to the shaft is sheared, and allowing the motor to run faster than it would if it is turning the blade properly.
Hope this helped,
Please rate me

this may not apply exactly to your particular model, but it is for Tecumsehs and may get you on the right track:
