Those things can be a terror to get back in place once they have escaped captivity.
You likely would be better off to get a new part with the spring properly in place. You will then avoid a lot of frustration.

First thing is to remove and clean the spark plug...remove carbon deposits or gummy residue (a shot or two of carb cleaner should do it !!). Check the gap on your plug to see if it is somewhere between .025 to .030 (if you have your manual it should tell you the proper gap space...if not google www.homelite.com and they should be able to give you the answer). Next re-attach plug to plug wire and place the plug base touching the cylinder head...pull start handle and see if you get a blue spark...if not then you've got a faulty magneto or a bad plug...if you have spark,open the throttle and pour about a teaspoonful of FRESH fuel mixture into the throat of the carburetor. Hold throttle open and pull start handle a few times...the engine should start and run for a few seconds...if it does then the problem lies in the fuel system. Check fuel filter inside tank...check fuel cap vent to make sure it is not clogged...check fuel lines (may be gunked up or de-composed) squeeze primer bulb to be sure gas is reaching carburetor and to make sure it has no holes or tears. Put fresh fuel in tank, choke set to full, and try to start...may take a number of pulls of the start handle...if it starts, you're probably OK, you may just have to re-adjust your carb a little...if not the problem is probably a trashed up or gummy carburetor...(you will have to clean it or rebuild it). good luck !!! ;-D
