Yes, if that's where it was when he pulled off the lockout. Like Raleigh1 said, it should be between the outter gear and retainer plate, just like the diagram shows!!

Yeah, that spring....

It's supposed to be underneath the "ring gear"...that's what engages/disengages the hub lock as you turn the selector ****.

There's two springs contained on the inner assembly of the Warn standard hubs. One is a captured spring that is under a lip on the free/lock ****...the other bigger one is under the ring gear.

Looks like my mechanic buddy took the hubs apart for some reason and forgot how to reassemble them correctly.

It took me awhile to figure it out but I got it straightened out...operates as is should.

Thanks again for the help guys.
