Default F3 Clutch and brake springs

This will probably go down as one of the silliest questions... Does anybody have a picture or instructions on how the clutch pedal spring goes? I'm pretty sure I have the right one but do not see anything obvious of where it hooks up. There would be one right?

Likewise, is there an external spring for the brake? Or just the one internal to the master cylinder? I have another small wire spring but I thought that was for the gas pedal.

Any help would be great! I took this all apart a year ago or more. Most of is going good but a few things stump me. Like this...

Thanks

I can take a look at my truck tomorrow and let you know if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

If i remember correctly its an od shaped end that goes into a hole(slot) in the crossbeam and other end to pin connecting pedal to rod.
Just look straight forward from pin and you find the hole...then just wiggle in the spring and hook up to pedal.

I just took a look at mine. The spring pulls forward at a slight angle to a hole in the bell housing cover plate. I can text you a picture if you PM your number.

I just crawled under my truck and snapped a few pics with my phone.

The clutch pedal return spring goes straight back to a hole in the bracket.

The brake pedal return spring goes forward from the end of the pin (Has a groove for the spring) to a hole in the cover plate on the bottom of the bell housing.

Hope this helps. I can try to post pics from my phone. If not, I can text or email them to you.
