First gen carburetor cock up

the first gen 125 I recently bought had stood for about 3 years in someone's garage, and the carbs were completely gunked up. Really nasty. Completely stuck as well, throttle wouldn't budge even a bit.

So I removed them both and gave them a really good bath. Unfortunately I ended up mixing up the parts. Not the biggest issue because I took about a million pictures beforehand... except for the springs of which I did not take pictures and only found out afterwards that they are different. Found information about the different needle sizes in the workshop manuals, but not about the springs.

Which spring goes into which carburetor?

They are listed with different part No's but I cant find and details and the manual says nothing about locations for them.

I wonder what happen if I click on this - Ooops


Based on some sherlock holming I have concluded that the longer spring with tighter windings (which is a bit floppier than the shorter one) PROBABLY (hopefully) goes into the front carb.

Also, not quite on-topic anymore, but I've made this collage to help me figure out where all these darn hoses go. Hopefully it'll be of use to someone else.
