No photos showed in your post.

While the "Best" set up shown above may well be the best, the "Better" image shows a set up that is (IMO) 90% as good as the Best set up. It's easier to do, and only requires that the return springs be attached forward of the throttle cable/linkage attachment point.

Always use a dual return spring- a "spring inside a spring" as used by many OEM's is an excellent type of return spring to use.

Below is a simple $9.00 spring and bracket sold by Mr. Gasket (P/N 720-19) that might work in your situation, and shows the type of spring to use:
