Kickstarter Issues After Reassembling

I had my kick starter axle/shaft out when working on my motor. When I buttoned everything up, the kick starter wouldn't spring back and return to the top, and when I manually pulled it up, it locked into the farthest position, now it doesn't seem to want to budge.

When I put it back in, I made sure the collar was down around the inner spring "end," and I made sure the outer spring "end" was stuck in the case. Does it need to be preloaded? The manual doesn't mention anything about that. I was also thinking that maybe the kick starter lever needs to be rotated on the kick start axle/shaft, but when I tried that, it didn't help.

Any pointers?

Not sure what I did, but it's fixed...
