Clutch release Spring

Can someone post a picture or a diagram of where the clutch release Spring hooks in? I can't find a picture in the manual and it's been too many years since I took mine off. Just having a little trouble remembering. 1966 F250 4 speed.
Thanks

1965/66 pic shows the spring attaching to the clutch release lever, but doesn't show the other end.

1969/72 pic is better. There's either a hole in the frame rail, or a bracket that attaches to the frame rail that the spring (7523) hooks into.

Yes. 7523 looks to be attached to the cross-member....perhaps. That's the end in question.
I dont believe the one I took off a few years ago was the correct spring.
Thank you Sir

That is not the cross member. Outer equalizer (Z) bar pivot (7507) bolts to the top of the left frame rail, spring hooks into hole or bracket in front of it.

hahaha! Sorry. I thought the dotted line was a cross- member. I'll get it in the right spot. Thanks Bill.

In a couple of those illustrations, there is an actual bracket that seems to have been put there just for the spring to attach to. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the PO did away with the bracket or it just rusted off. This truck really was eaten up with rust!
The only thing I have that's even close to the dotted line is the steering box or the cross-member.
I may have to fab something to do the job.
Hopefully, a few pics will roll in and I'll be able to see what other trucks have.

My 66 F250 had the bracket installed.
