1959 Swish-err

I restored this in my spare time over the course of about two years. It's all done and running except i cant remember how or where the blade return spring is fastened.

Inside the blade housing on the right ride there is a square nut welded to the edge. I remember the spring hooked there. I thought at the time it may have been something someone added but now i am wondering if it was that way from the factory because of another picture i found on the WWW.

Do any of you guys have a Swisher of this vintage and can you show me a picture of the blade engagement area where the return spring is?

A fine looking machine but as I assume that it was of US manufacture, I would think that the answer is more likely to come from your side of the pond than ours - but you never know.
