I have Toro Recycler self propelled mower with fast start

Resolved Question:

I have Toro Recycler self propelled mower with fast start and I cannot get to run at hi rev enough to cut grass. I disconnected the component that drives the self propelled connector and while I did this I turned engine upside down for short period after which I have not bewen able to get it running as it did before. I have changed the filter, and the spark plug It now runs very slow until it just completely shuts down ....do you have any advice?

Engine runs at constant speed, has no throttle cable? If so, you likely had sprong come loose on top of the carburetor. The spring holds the throttle at constant speed.
