Set the governor to factory spec but still it doesn't want to close the throttle so I checked the governor gear it isn't stripped but the spring loaded part seems to be sticking a little. The oil was turning to slime so I wonder if I should just try a oil change with a additive or replace the governor gear.

Not exactly sure what you are saying. If the gear is striped it would seem obvious to change it. and also do a thorough cleaning to to make sure all the debris is not left to plug oil passages and foul the works. Don

 Makes much more sense now, by all means if the oil is suspect change it. I am not a fan of additives, if I think the oil is not up to the job I look for better oil. Don

I usually use something like seafoam in the oil to flush out the old out.

Diesel fuel makes as good a flush as any.  If it don't want to idle down check your linkage, something may not be hooked up right.

I'm starting to think it the spring it pulling it down which is open.
