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.

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
