Toro Snowblower 828 with B&S Engine Throttle and Governor Linkage

Hello, I have a Toro Snowblower (Model - 38570, Ser - 9001326) with a Briggs & Stratton engine (model 190406, Type 3104-01, Code 88093010). I can't find diagrams for the throttle and governor linkage. I've attached a picture and labeled the different attachment points.  I have the throttle rod (#6) attached to location #2 and the governor spring attached as shown.  Problem is, the engine speed is constant, regardless of the throttle rod position.  Any pictures, advice or diagrams would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

    OK, so like it is currently attached?  Attaching it like this, though, has no effect on engine speed when the throttle is pulled up or pushed down?  Is there something else I'm missing?

    You are attaching L to point 4? If so then try a static governor adjustment and if that don't work and you are running at full throttle then the governor has failed.

    No, I'm attaching the governor lever (point 4) to point 3 via the spring.
     
    The throttle rod end (point L) is attached to point 2.

    It sounds like you're suggesting I should attach the throttle directly to the governor?  Is this correct?  Sorry, maybe I'm not understanding correctly.

    Yes. The rest of the control assembly is applies spring tension on the governor to regulate the overall speed. The governor via the linkage is what moves the throttle vane in the carburetor.
