74 DT360A clutch return spring hooks to...? #1
For the life of me I cannot figure out what the eyelet on this return spring hooks to. I'm sure it will be something that was staring me in the face all along, but for now I can't see it. None of my many manuals or even google images show it hooked up, so I'm clueless. Thanks!

Photos of mine attached. In terms of orientation, the bit with the eye faces backwards.

The eye doesn't hook to anything - looks odd, but I raised this myself a while back and was assured that it is correct.

Bizarre, mine won't even reach that area to stay put. I may just rig up a little metal tang off the local screw there to hold it in place. Not correct but I am not sure what else to do! Thanks for helping me out here, I appreciate it.

I've just braved Storm Dennis to go and take some more photos of mine for you! A couple are attached.

Your spring does look too short - is it a new one?

Thanks! Yes, mine was too short but I bent it up a little so now it functions like it's supposed to and stays retained by the engine casing. Just a little gentle persuasion.
