79 jeep CJ7 258 I6 throttle cable hookup

I am not sure of the location of the throttle cable return spring on our CJ (1 barrel carb). We have a YJ body on a CJ7 frame and everything else is CJ. We attached the throttle cable which seems a bit loose and we can't figure out where to hook the spring. I have a pic for you. Right now, we have the spring temporarily hooked to a zip strap to see how the throttle feels. It feels fine but we still have some play in the cable. Do I need to change out the cable due to using the YJ? I shouldn't have to but iit just doesn't seem right. If anyone has a pic to follow, I would appreciate it.
