The drive cable will only have tension when the handle is pulled. The end of the spring should connect to the lever on the gearbox. The cable housing will fit into the hole in the gear case. I have pointed to it with a yellow arrow in the image below. The other image is of the spring that tensions the belt. That spring connects to the gear case on one end and to the bolt on the other end.
