Onan P218G Carb Linkage

I've resealed my intake manifold and put everything back together and started it up but it revs way up. The only way I can control it is to push the governor arm towards the front or the tractor. That's the only way I can control the revs.

When I reassembled the linkage I couldn't remember where or how the front was hooked up to the carb. Here a picture of the linkage:

I remember where it was in the back by the governor shaft but not up front. If I hook it up as what I think is correct the spring and linkage open the butterfly wide open. Can anyone give me a suggestion? It doesn't make sense to me that the butterfly would be positioned furtherest away from the idle adj screw,

Thanks in advance for any help.

Steve when you hook the link up at the carb it looks like its in the full throttle position,but when you start it up it moves back to the idle position. Dave
