Default Help attaching motor to Kenmore Model 83 rotary machine

I recently acquired a Kenmore Model 83 rotary sewing machine which was left on the side of the road.The machine was working great but the wiring for the lightbulb was exposed so I removed the motor to rewire the light. I am now having a hard time reattaching the motor so that the spring provides tension to hold the motor up to the rotary wheel. I basically cannot figure out which orientation the spring uses to do this.

I was wondering if anyone had any tips on reattaching the motor, or if anyone else had this machine and could send me a photo of the top looking down into the space between the machine and motor so I can understand how the spring sits.
