Unhappy 1998 6 hp Evinrude cover

I've got a 1998 6hp Evinrude and I'm trying to figure out how the cover latch works. There is a spring that attaches to the cover latch part and that is what has me stumped. The old spring was broken so I ordered a new one and I cant quite figure out how the latch works with the spring. There are two little holes that I can see where the spring attaches but I can't really see what the purpose is for the spring. If I put the spring on the cover latch and put the cover on, the spring falls off. Can someone help me with this?

I will see if I can look at something at work, I can't picture it right now.

Is this the spring your talking about?


This was taken from the inside of the hood looking back.

Hey Chet, Thanks for the photo, I have the spring in place. I think Im having problems with the bottom latch also, the cover latch will fit in the the bottom latch but wont lock in. Does the bottom latch come as one unit or are there any parts inside the bottom latch that I can replace...........Thanks
