Its almost impossible and dangerous to do without a press , although I've done it with a vice ( not recommended ) .

 

I made a homemade spring compressor to install cub clutch springs . Its basically a long threaded 5/8 rod with two U shaped removable brackets on each end . Its safe and easy to make .

Also works with the clutch still in the tractor if your using a split locking collar with a pulling clutch spring .

I can take some pictures and get measurements for you tomorrow if your interested in making one .

I use a vice on stock springs,but I would NOT recommend using one to install a pulling spring.

I have a press, but I do it in my lathe using the tail stock to press the shaft.

When we used to pull cubs we added 396 valve springs in place of the stock springs. For $12 you will have just as stong as a Super cub red spring
