    Before you get all radical, slow down a bit. There is no reason to hack the gen set up. Put it all back together like it was to start with. Then READ the TM on how to remove the Electronic Actuater. When you CAREFULLY remove the Actuater, see if the Actuater linkage is connected to the Ip. This sounds very much like several instances I have seen where the Actuater was not correctly installed. The linkage pushed the Fuel control to the side and the gen set continued to allow fuel to enter the IP. ALso, apply 24 VDC to the Actuater while holding in your hand, to see it it functions. Read the TM, it's your best friend.

    This should have been your first clue that its not an electronic problem, but mechanical.
