Maybe send another photo of the spring beside a ruler so we can get an idea of size. Aslo post ariens model number and serial number. Did you split the machine in half to get at the auger belt to make sure the belt is on the right side of the brake gizmo?

Took a look at https://parts.ariens.com/
and there are 4 or 5 variants on your machine, depending on age.

It does resemble a tension spring, i have a similar one that applies tension to the idler arm on my Craftsman (Husqvarna).

Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...
2008 Craftsman 944.528391 (It's a Husqvarna ST227P)
