OK, that torsion spring can be a bear to get on. Hate to say it, but try again. Mike's part is machined correctly, of that you can be sure. If the spring really won't go on, you can re-drill the hole to give the spring a bit less tension. Call Mike to confirm; he also may have some hints to getting that bugger on. I would wager he's done a few more doo jobs than anyone in the known universe.
As to the broken spring bit, ya gotta find it. Are you sure it's not in the vicinity of the doo? Drain the oil and look for it. Can you get a magnet up the drain hole and fish around a bit? It's worth the effort to find it; the havoc it can cause is significant. Hopefully there are others who can advise on how to find that thing.
Wish I could be more helpful.
