YS624 Questions: Shift guide removal implications and engine tuning

Hello all. So I finally got around to working on my 624 and I have a few questions.

First...I was having problems with the gears. 4th gear in forward and 2nd gear in reverse were the only two gears that worked. Upon some investigation, I found the plunger shaft was not lining up with the with the holes in the shift guide. I was going to try to adjust the shift linkage but for the heck of it, I just removed the shift guide completely. Seems to work like a charm but will the cause accelerated wear or something?

Also, it ran when I got it but not well. I cleaned the carburetor and it runs a little better...but when I try to pull it back to idle, it only de-revs to about 1/2 engine speed. It wont go down to idle....even with carburetor adjustments. That and the throttle lever seems really loose. It doesn't stay in place. Does this sound like a governor problem or can this be solved by fixing/adjusting tuning or linkage?
