the kickstart arm w/cotter .. holds the quadrant axle "in place" ... to the outer cover
The spring can drop off the peg so the assembly still has to be held fully out until the spring has been pre-tensioned (by one full turn of the lever) before the cover is replaced.
and when installed
the quadrant is captured between the inside of the outer cover ( outer bush ) ... and outside of inner cover ,
It will be axle spring locating splines "...between the inside of the outer cover (outer bush)
" not the "quadrant" (because the spring is outboard of the quadrant).
