880 running away

Ron I have a David Brown 880. After it warms up it will start to rev up by itself. I can pull the throttle back down and it will return to normal. It seems to run fine except for this. Is this in the govenor or possible a fuel problem? Its not terribly bad, but I would hate for it not to respond to the throttle.
AJ Before doing anything big service the fuel system first,put in new filters,clean the glass bowl and gauze etc,If you have an inline pump check it for oil as some of them had their own oil,there is a level plug about half way up on the govenor housing and a filler plug on top,use engine oil,if there is a pipe going from the engine block to the injector pump then it is fed with engine oil and there is no need to check,are all the return springs in place.Good luck
