There's a clevis on the master cylinder rod that attaches to your lever. 
You should be able to rig up a loop of wire through it and attach your 
spring end to that. Or remove the cotter pin on the clevis and replace 
it with a wire loop. Or use a long cotter pin and open up its closed 
end, running a loop of wire through it. Or something...

Bear in mind that you adjust the actuation point of the brake light 
switch by rotating the body of the switch after disconnecting the wires 
from the top.
