When I was disassembling my 1973 Beetle Inside the tunnel under the shift coupler I see this spring hooked to a tab welded to the bottom of the tunnel. the other end of the spring was hooked to a clamp on the shift rod. The car was formerly an Automatic stick shift. All the autostick parts were gone when I bought it.

I bought this engine in 2010 as a long block and 2 milk crates of parts. I assembled it using extra parts that I had in my parts stash. Compression was even across all 4 cylinders but a bit low at 90psi. I does run well though and will hold me over while I build a bigger more powerful engine.
