Yes, it is the spring that pushes the pawl into the cog. The roads in Iowa are garbage, and it is like being in a war zone, so I hit a pothole today that jarred it loose. Each time I have pulled off the site glass, the spring is 100% compressed, and the pawl is shoved tight against spring. The spring is in place, but it doesn't push the pawl back to where it should go.
