Throttle Springs

Does anyone have a picture or a diagram showing where all the throttle springs are attached to the throttle linkage all the way from the peddle to the carb?

My linkage has only one spring on it, and it look really micky mouse. So I think that Billy Bob & Cooter were in there playing at some point.

I see that some of the part vendors list 2 different springs, but I cant figure out where they attach to.

Is there only that one spring on that connects to the firewall? I didnt see any others in the pictures?

My car has a spring connected to the linkage right off the carb, and the other end of the spring was connected to the vacuum hardline that feeds the vacuum advance on the distro. So I figured that was not stock, probably something done by Billy-Bob and Cooter. The firewall spring was broken, so perhaps the carb-vacuum line spring was done by someone as a patch fix.

I have replaced the firewall spring, but didnt know if there was another spring closer to the carb or not.
