McCulloch Chain brake

Hey Guys,, I have a PM605 saw chain brake here.. The owner only brought the brake assy, not the whole saw.. The brake will not latch in the operating position,, It's the type 2 in the parts look-up.. The latch doesn't apear worn (still has paint on it).. I can't see anything missing as per the parts look-up,, & the other repair place in the next town can't figure it out either... Does anyone know these saws better than I do??? What am I missing?? Thanks Lots,, Roger

I've looked @ this for 2 days & revisited it again after posting... The answer was right in front of me but I didn't see it for looking @ it... The large coil spring under the handle hooks onto the pawl to hold it latched.. I couldn't see "the forest for the trees" Thanks Everyone... Roger
