This problem started when i was cutting the grass and the butterfly is to far back for the filter to touch it. Like what i said before i can move to lever from normal to high and nothing happens.Can you open & close the butterfly and change the rpm?
Did this problem start after you took the carb off?
There is a Dude on youtube named jon3800, I think you are having the same problem he was having. He found the lever that's links the carb to the governor was flipped over and locked fwo (full wide open).
As much detail as possible. The air filter scenario is pretty strange, if the filter is touching (opening) the butterfly when you put it in could be what is raising the rpm when installed.
