Governor is off and apart. Everything looks good. Guess I need to fiddle with this thing for a while to determine why the throttle lever would not return to idle position.

The governor is supposed to be tight in the housing, but it might come apart, leaving the part with the gear and the weights in the engine.
If you take it apart, I would check the weight pins, and the holes in the weights for wear, sometimes they get worn. They should have no wear, so the weights don't move side to side.
When putting it together, be sure the 3 piece bearing is in place at the end of the governor shaft.

Below is a pic from TM Tractor of how the governor housing should look inside. :)

Thanks Glen. The arm on the rock shaft is clocked wrong, must have moved but it is really tight could not pound it apart, that will require my press. Maybe I can find a new or used one.

Took the Rock Shaft apart and the pin that holds it together was still intact. That leaves only one remaining possibility. The fork must have bent. Ordered a used fork to compare with mine.

Thanks all for your help walking me through this.
