The schematic does not show it as a separate piece as though it is sold as part of the dog.

That looks like the later model with the plastic dog.  If I recollect right, the spring for that is different than that for the older metal dog version.

Here's a picture of the missing spring. This is, as near as I can determine, a '74 300. Don't have a schematic, but the spring will come off the stupid plastic AR lever. You could possibly fabricate one.

One more. Hopefully better. The spring end points towards the top of the reel when installed.

It sure looks like black plastic with a bunch of graphite grease smeared on it to me.

How about you remove it, clean it & the gears up & show us pics of both sides of the dog. It's kind of tough to give advice when one can't get a clear picture of the part & problem.

You should be able to fabricate one out of SS or Brass craft sheet, or maybe even a fairly heavy piece of galvanized sheet metal. Especially if Greg gives you the measurements of the straight portions.  Smiley The bend angle is fairly self explanatory.
