Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
This is a generic response to all John Deere Variator linkages but most likely what you must do with a transmission change.
To adjust the "Variator linkage" do the following.
1. Pry off the buttons on the side that cover the access holes located just below the variable speed lever.
2. Put the variable speed lever in notch #5.
3. Loosen cap screw one or two turns. This is located inside the hole.
4. Disconnect and ground the spark plug.
5. Turn ignition key to crank engine until clutch-brake pedal raises as high as it will go.
6. Take up linkage slack by pushing down on cap screw (see step #2). Tighten cap screw.
NOTE: If the tractor won't move with the variator in the first notch after these adjustments then the primary drive belt needs to be replaced.
I am concerned that maybe you did not connect the linkage properly but you have to do the above steps if no matter what you do you only have slow speeds.

I hear that on the service manual and the springs. Take a look at these decks if you talking about a deck belt and find yours. Then look for the spring routing visually.
If you need drive belt info look here:
I would like to know if this was enough info for you so that you were able to re-connect the spring.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
