Help with John Deere 160

Hello. I have just acquired a John Deere 160 for free. Unfortunately, the engine is over revving. I do not know what damage is caused. The owner said that he thinks the governor gear inside the engine has shredded. If so, do they make replacements and can I order one? Second, what may have gotten damaged white it was over revving? It is a Kawasaki FB460V. It is a flathead engine, so do the valves need to be repaired in any way after over revving? It seems a bit slow to rev up from idle. Please let me know. The guys says when it started to over rev, it was not ran for long after. Thanks in advance.
