I suspect governor not operating correctly.. When I open throttle slightly,engine revs all way up ?

1966 Briggs 10 hp.  model#243434  type#0147 01   code#6612061

Maybe air vane under flywheel housing ?? Do you have to remove engine to get housing off?

If the flywheel end is attached to a drive shaft to power the machine, YES it has to come out!

Welcome to GTT. Check our Manuals Section for info that you need. Check the manual, you may be able to adjust the governor in the tractor. Good Luck, Rick

Governor should be mechanical on the that engine, no air vane involved.  I would start by checking to make sure all the linkages and springs are intact and hooked up.  Then do the base adjustment as per the Briggs manual.
