Reattaching a kickstand spring

This single post is part of a larger thread. Start from the top or view this post in context.

I have a Puch Maxi e50 engine, I took the clutch cover off to replace the gasket and I am having a lot of trouble getting the kickstand spring to reattach. I tried cleaning it off to get rid of any rust and I attached it to one end then put the other end on a screwdriver and tried stretching it to the other end but it barely extends at all and I can't get it to attach. I also tried to remove the screws on the sides of the kickstand to make it lean more to the side when I attach it but that didn't work either.

I've been looking up what to do online and everyone keeps linking to a video that no longer exists on Youtube, so if anyone could offer any tips that would be great.
