Just what spring  is causing the problem

Is this is just mating an assembled  Dtype  OD to the gearbox adaptor housing ?

Fitting the two together is a nack,  are you sure its spring,  what can you see?

if the splines inside dont align they stop the od from dropping down the main  shaft leaves a good gap.
the easiest trick is two good screw drivers and whilst dropping the od lever the two pressure plates
open a little this  allows the annulus to rotate and all the hub splines  line up and she drop into place
