" The F04 Picture of governor parts does not list spark advance as such..."
That's because the governor has nothing to do with the spark advance. The spark is advanced by the weights in the distributor under the plate.
Lots of causes for it to misfire; start w/ the most likely. Firing order is 1-2-4-3, CCW.
