    I had to remove the brake pedal to get a new skid plate on, now i am having a hell of time getting it back on and the spring to seat properly. Any ideas from anyone who has taken this off and re-installed it??

    Unclip th master cylinder linkage. That should give you some rotation backwards tobset the spring tab. Then thread the spindle in and tighten. Then reattach the master.

    I think the spring tab just goes to the rear side of the frame.

    +1 on the linkage or just unbolt the master cylinder.

    Don’t try putting that spring tab in that hole that looks like it’d be for a spring tab. That way lies madness.

    Disconnect the master cylinder push rod from the back of the brake pedal first.
    It'll free up the pedal so you can put the spring on the frame with the pedal lifted in the front, then you can get the spring seated, bolt the pedal on, then reattach the push rod.
