yeah - i had seen that diagram but it does not make it clear how that spring sits... what do the two bent end sit in? sorry for me not figuring this out but sometimes those manuals just expect you to know all things..

Shawn, I know your post was some time ago, but wondering if you ever got the answer? I am faced with the same question, not knowing how exactly the arm spring is positioned. Thanks, Doug g

Re: 77 Honda express starter spring position

It can only go one way. One end of spring is L shaped and fits into hole. Other end is u shaped and wraps around back side of starter arm. Now if you're not paying attention you can get the starter arm on backwards. Observing wear marks will prevent mistakes.

Left side goes into hole. Right side wraps around back side of arm under tension so that arm is engaged into sprocket teeth.
