Can I do this ?

Can I hook my brake-return-spring way over on that "other" hole?  This NOS spring just doesn't have enough pull to return my shoes away from the drum when attached in the stock location.  It drags for a few wheel rotations.  If I ride like 2 miles and decelerate, and slow down without really using my rear brake, and feel the drum, it's cold.  But if I whip it in the driveway, hard braking, shut off the bike - and push it, I can feel it drag kinda on the rear for about 10-20 feet.  I've determined the spring can't hit anything . . . and it's got more pulling pressure.  Hmmmm?
