Brake Pedal Spring

Does anyone have a close up picture of one from behind or could take one? I am trying to put my rear brakes back on my Laeger and I know where it goes I just don't see where it will stay tight to keep the pedal attached. I feel like a moron haha. Thanks for the help.

It'll stay on there. Like Dan said, doesn't fit so well on the round tube frame

Ok thanks guys. I got it to stay but I thought it would fit like the stock frame. I didn't take into consideration the round tube instead of the square.

Alright so now I have a new problem. I got everything secure and on correctly, including the spring. I took the caliper apart and cleaned everything really well and now the pistons move freely with no binding. I put the caliper back on the rotor and tightened everything back up. The pads are still dragging quite a bit so I thought because it's a new rotor and pads that they may need some break in so I rode it around for a few minutes and stopped. Not only was the rotor and caliper hot but I noticed that on the right side of the rotor the wear was way wider than on the left side. It looks like the entire pad is rubbing on the right side and only about a 1/2" on the left side. I'm using a Nac's brake stay and OEM caliper but what I'm thinking is that the brake stay might be thinner so it's pulling the caliper closer on the right side and barely touching on the left side. Has anyone had this happen to them? I'm going to try and put a washer in between the caliper and brake stay to spread it out a little more and see what happens. What do you guys think? Sorry for the long explanation, I should have took pictures it would have been easier.

All of the bolts are in great shape. I even cleaned and steel wooled them just to be sure. I do have an OEM brake stay I'm going to compare tn and see.

Just eyeing it up tonight it looks like the billet one is a little thinner. I put a washer in between the mount and caliper and it helped quite a bit. It rolls nice but there is a slight drag. I'm going to try it out and if it gets hot again I'll put another one on. Also greased all the zerks and did some more bolt checking so it's ready to rock n roll at Bar2Bar this weekend.
