I think you have it like it is in the photo. The spring sits in the filler plug. It's difficult on your back underneath with little room, but you can carefully balance it on the plug. Then compress it into the drain hole until the plug is in full contact with the pan, and then rotate to thread in. The spring wants to resist your effort, but if you're careful and hold it up flush with the pan, it will thread right in. The trick I found was to position my hand and arm so I could press it up and still have enough range of motion left to rotate it. I have an Outfitter 550 with an identical setup.
