Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 1 year ago.

It sounds like the spring that you are referring to goes to the ready start choke feature on the engine. I am sending over a picture of the spring and location that might help you. The spring will attach to the choke assembly on one end and the other end will hook onto a stationary tab on part of the plastic assembly on the top of the carburetor that sticks out toward the engine with a little tab on it(the spring hooks over the tab on that end).
