Default Van's throttle springs

Has anyone tried to install vans new throttle return springs? I tried but
could not get any ends of the springs to contact the idle screw as shown
in the picture.

The springs were easy to install (much better design); just step back, have a beer and give her another go🧐

Default Hmmmm... should be pretty easy.

They really are a piece of cake to install, almost anticlimactic. Perhaps you could take a picture, or even facetime me and I can see what might be causing you a problem.

The springs are handed. Check that you haven't got left and right springs mixed up. One has blue ink on it to help you, but even without the blue ink it's got to be one of the easiest installs on the engine.

Default Throttle spring

The inner arm of the spring does not rest on the adjustment screw. Look closely at the photo. Blow it up if possible and I think you will. Se it resting on the screw head behind the adjusting screw.
