I recently bought a used model 7104L Makita chain mortiser. It was in working order, except for the fact that the spring which assists operation of the lever that controls the angle of the chain was missing. I have bought the missing spring, but I am not sure how to mount it on the tool. Would someone be willing to lay a Makita mortiser down and take a picture of the spring in place, from below? I think I can figure it out from there.

I am referring to parts 26 and 27 in the exploded view of the machine at this link: https://cdn.makitatools.com/apps/cms/doc/prod/710/101f9056-d353-40eb-a94d-16102f8364c6_7104L_PB.pdf
