The springs are on the out side of the tabs, using the oil tank mount as a example , it would be the tank tab, inner primary tab, washer , spring , washer , nut /with cotter pin. ( of course the bolt goes through from the inside , it would be too much fun with that castellated nut on the inside )( I have seen some set up differently ) As far as why , my guess is to keep vibration from breaking the inner primary sheet metal tabs . You should have two springs , for top oil tank tab and the frame tab below .
