You dont need a picture to put the spring back on. Just wrap it around the clutch shoe's and your set.

i have been having problems with the clutch springs breaking but ive found out why. Make sure the idle is low enough so that there is absolutely no power pushing the car forward so that when the car is stoppped the clutch is trying to engage and the spring is being worn out quickly. Also ive found the easiest way to put the springs on is to take off the clutch shoes, and get the spring onto a little ledge that is part of the flywheel, so that when you put the shoes back on you can slip the spring straight on. I was having a lot of trouble putting the springs on with the clutch shoes on and they were being a bit bent from it.
