How do I install the torsion spring for my side discharge lawn mower?

I have a Craftsman 22" mulching mower with a side discharge that I recently inherited. The model # is 917.387470. The mulching plate was missing and I ordered one from Sears Parts. When installing I could not simply snap it on as it showed in the manual, so I had to remove the hinge pin and torsion spring. Now, for the life of me I cannot replace the torsion spring properly. I went to the store to see if they were the same type, but sure enough its a different style hinge pin and spring on the new models. Any suggestions? Diagrams or pictures would help. Thanks!
