Check to make sure the linkage from the governor to the carburetor is not binding and is properly adjusted. If it still surges, adjust the bumper spring to eliminate it. Both adjustment procedures are explained on pages 34 and 35 of the A-B Service Manual that Bill referenced above.

Replace the bumper spring behind the acorn nut on the bottom of the governor. Mine was surging and I could not adjust it out. Finally got a new spring and when I compared the two the old spring was half the length of the new one.
