Governor is designed to increase RPM under a load.
Now if increasing your speed under a load generates a misfire then consideration of what might be problematic in an engine mis-fire, under load, comes into play.
Generally a spark plug wire misfire comes into play at a higher RPM.
However, you said under a load. So if the engine is under a strain and misfiring you could look at the power circuit inside the carburetor as being faulty. '
However the carburetor is the absolute last thing to look at when diagnosing an engine.
We're still diagnosing so the carburetor, while a player, is dead last on the list. before you touch the carburetor, you need to diagnose and verify the operation of the electrical system without a doubt.
Generally the first place an engine has to work to overcome a load is inside the combustion cylinder. What easily replaceable part is located inside the combustion cylinder to provide electricity in the form of a spark?
There might be a good place to start diagnosing your engine. Now if the sparkies all look acceptable perhaps a general inspection of the air pressure inside the cylinder should be next in order after removing the sparkies. That would be a compression check to make sure your not flogging a horse that is already dead upon arrival.
As for that massively complex clutch, a simple replacement might be in order following all standards on prevention of a sticking clutch in the future which have already been covered numerous times.
