It the governor pushes the rod back, governor is working.

This lever is connected to the governor spring, which will then stretch (expand) out and pull on the output shaft of the governor, which will push the rod going to the carb throttle butterfly increasing the RPM's.
If you then manually pull back (to the rear) the lever going to the carb, it will allow the spring to compress some cause you are helping the spring pull the rod. When you let go, the governor weights will then open back up to push the rod forward slowing the engine back down.
Ideally, the spring and the force of the governor weights being thrown out are equal and opposite to each other no matter what throttle setting. But over time as the spring weakens, the weights will over power it, which then inhibits the engine from reaching full throttle, and slows throttle response.
