OK I got the Troybilt running but the Gov is not working, it vibrated and came off, and I'm sure how to put it back together.

 

I am thinking this spring goes into the slot. but it seems awful strong.

Yes I have, but it doesn't show it, or at east I can't find it.

My book show to loosen the nut so the arm is free, rotate the shaft ccw all the way, then pull the carb. all the way open with the gov. and tighten the nut

I understand that part, but does this spring go into the slot?

 

I seems awful tight and I get no gov control.

Well I figured it out, somebody was trying to use the arm to open the throttle, and they had to loosen the brass nut to it. The arm is used to attach the cable housing to, and the nut adjusts the max RPM. The cable is supposed to attach to the disc. Well everything vibrated loose and I had to figure out how the parts went back together. After some tinkering I think I have it now.

I spent this time trying to find a you tube photo for you, but no luck. Your right with that arm. The spring is pretty stiff when the engine isn't running. Good job!
