The govenor rod cannot be adjusted. The springs
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

LDV maxus hard starting tip
My 2006 Ldv maxus had a starting problem, fitted new glow plugs,still hard starting,the problem I had was it would crank over for about 15 minutes but would not start, leave it about 15 minutes put jump leads on it and it would start and run all day,but leave it over night and the same thing in the morning was told check crank sensor,cam sensor still the same.
i ended up putting another battery under the drivers seat running cables to the battery and for the last 6 months it's started first time every time without any problems still starts fine every day even after leaving it for 2 weeks starts first time with out even glowing the plugs.
hope you try this easy fix let me know if it sorts your problem.
