Hi-

Turns out that spring is there to prevent the gear shift lever from
vibrating. One end is attached to the top of the compression spring
assembly and the other goes straight down and attaches under the
shift rod joint. The parts manual doesn't show the other side of the
shift rod joint where the spring attaches.

Thanks to Hugh Gordon for taking an emergency call at home and to Ed
Price for the engineer's point of view.
