Unhappy How do you replace the Clutch Spring on a Sears Chainsaw??

I did a BOZO move with my Sears Craftsman (Poulan) 16" chainsaw and bad things happened - now I need help. I started the engine with the Clutch cover unsecured and things went flying. I think I found all the parts but am having "extreme difficulty" in trying to reposition/remount the spring around the clutch weights. Is there an easy way to do this? I've tried a number of times so far and haven't yet been successful, so I figure I'm not doing something right.

It comes as an assembly, not pieces, so most folks have probably never attempted it. I have, but I can't recall how I did it. It's tough. It would be easy if you could find or make a cone to roll the spring down and stretch it big enough to go around the clutch and snap onto it when it rolled off the end of the cone.
