Correct Mortise Lock Spring Placement

I took apart my mortise lock to clean it and the spring popped off. I don't know where to reattach. In hindsite I obviously should have taken a photo before. Would you be able to show me were to reattach the spring to make the latch work again? I have now taken a photo but don't know how to post it here from my desktop. If someone can tell me how to, I'll post it.

Thanks So much,
Joy

Actually I think I figured out where the spring attaches but the larger peg I can't get the spring to slide down on as the inner diameter of the spring ring is too tight. I can't find a tool to spread it so I can shimmy it back on the peg by the latch rod. Any suggestions?
