Question about Stihl Garden
Put the housing end in first, take the spool and hold the spool end against it and wind the spool in the air until the spring is wound tight, then install the spool back into the housing. you have to keep your fingers on each end of the spring and hold the spool relatively close to the housing, obviously, but it's not a hard trick to master.

I was able to rewind the spring steel coil, but it took 2 people, one at each end, to wind it tightly and hold it tightly enough to fit back into the casing. The bend at the end of the coil must be re-inserted into its own retainer. It was not easy, and it takes some time to get this done. RH

On the end of the spring there would be a loop or some other manner to attach to the pulley. Usually what you have to do it wind the spring tight (not to breaking point) and then put the loop into a slot in the pulley and push down while inserting the screw and washer to hold it in place

Easy suggestion would be to get new spring coil. Is it older saw? Have had to change mine on poulan saws before.

I hope you have strong hands. Start by holding the inside end of the spring in one hand, then carefully wind the spring back into a circle tightly until you get to the other end. The finished diameter of the spring must be a little smaller than the area it goes back into. Put it back in, then replace the pulley like it was when you disassembled it.
