I see green fuel line. Doesn't look like the right size hose. I also see the fuel pump isn't hooked up. How does this engine get fuel? No way the tank is high enough to gravity feed...... Looks like you have lots of issues you need to fix.

Throttle may go wide open, but it's starving for fuel, not flooding it. Looks like you have a fixed jet Walbro on this thing.

See how much posting a picture helps??? That why we asked for it.

I have a electric fuel pump. Low pressure and yes it is the fixed main jet. The engine runs great but when I tried to increase the rpm is when I have the issue, it seems like to much tension on the spring and the governor can’t really correct it, I even tried the different holes on both linkages.

The spring looks stock to me. Dash lever controls the tension. If the engine won't rev past 2400 without choking to death, you have an engine issue. Plain and simple. If the throttle plate is all the way open and the engine isn't trying to run away, the governor is working.

Towards shaft.. you likely have a fuel or carb adjustment problem if its bogging at high rpm

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
