Does anyone have a diagram of how the accelerator pedal spring on a 65 is installed?

It is identical to the Bronco.

I have a 69 and there seems to be no springs. It is just loosey goosey. Am I missing something?
I was going to say the same thing about my 67, I've had the car for 20 years and never had one; guess we're both in the same boat.

Check that gas pedal screw once in a while or better yet, locktite it.

PITA to put that back together at night, in the rain, on the side of the road.

Also a PITA to put back together in a race car with a roll cage…between races…after it falls off in a race and you get your foot hung under the brake pedal and go four off…

Well, that was easy. The trick for me was to unhook the linkage from the carb so I could lift the pedal as far up as possible, then if you feed the spring as per the Bronco video it almost went in by itself. Once you get the spring into place you hook it over the arm and then just push the top end into the pedal. Barely an inconvenience.
