Toro 824 Torsion Clutch Spring Replacement

Anyone tackle this one yet? Small spring, keeps tension on the the auger control when in the OFF position. Mine is broken. Have the spring, but can't figure out how to get the old off,and new on. Push nut is off, also pulled the tension pulley, can't slide it back because the assembly hits the large drive pulley.

Any tips, besides pull the wheel and side panel off?

If it helps, Toro spring PN 20-1160 and Push Nut 93-3236.
Thanks

Ok, I saw a bunch of views, but no answers, so I figured it out. It looks simple, but this is the reality. Take the push nut off where the spring is. Pry it, you may need to replace.

Remove the belly pan, Remove the belt cover, Split the unit with the 4 nuts, take the 4 bolts off of the side panel, take out the 2 bolts that hold the handle bars(I had to slide the wheel off), take the cotter pin off the control rod, remove the 2 bolts that support the torsion rod.

Now wiggle this mess around and you can tip the shaft up, slide off the old spring, and slid on the new.

Now work everything backwards to reassemble. No wonder it cost so much at a shop.
