Dan this is classic govenor problem
Did you debur the shuttle following my instruction in the repair manual or did you just clean it off?
you may want to get a boneyard unit and try it


BTW you have a steel worm drive gear so very doubtful you have it apple cored.
This happened to the nylon worm gears.
