Check the linkage between the governor and the carburetor. See if you can push it forward to slow the engine down. If the linkage looks OK but pushing it doesn't slow it down, check the carburetor itself for 1) loose arm on the throttle shaft, 2) throttle plate fell off the shaft.

Check on what Jim said. If that all checks out, I would bet on the thrust bearing in the governor. Happened to me. Depending on the condition inside the governor, might as well replace the springs while you're in there.
