When I install a new spring I save the wire or retainer that comes on new one.  Drive a 6 or 8 penny nail in bench top deep enough where the head keeps spring from coming off nail.  I cut down a bad 272 Husky starter pulley a little smaller than wound spring.  Hook outer end on nail, hook inner in starter pulley and wind.  When wound drop saved retainer over spring release slowly.  I've used this method 8-10 times works good for me.
