Is there a way to create a Coiled spring of 26 coils on an arc radius of 3.781inchs arc length of spring is 13.706inc

 

The major dia of the spring is 3/8 inch with the wire dia is NOT given

 

The original Hand done drawing are attached in PDF version 6 format

 

As for Inventor I'm using 2012. It is the first time I have come across this sort of problem I thought of doing a single coil and creating a sub assemble of it around a construction line arc rad with each coil mated and rotated at an angle to the other but then thought that there must be  an easier way of creating this spring.
