To my knowledge, the spring is merely to assist the pedal to return at its default position (clutch engaged), that is pedal up. Normally, it would have an exaggerated j ends. The ends are meant to hook to two (2) slots, one at the pedal itself, the other at the bracket/housing or firewall and not replace the entire clutch assembly. Having said that and as per your post, the clutch works fine, it is a matter of finding a replacement spring of similar physical characteristics/dimensions and hook in place. Hooking in place is relatively easy saved that you have to crouch down and use a long noise pliers. A mechanics troubleshooting lamp would help seeing where the j ends would and should go into.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
