Is there supposed to be a spring inside this?

Yup. You may need to try different springs in order to achieve desired torque.

I had trouble printing the large part with pla. I turned it over and it printed fine.

I won't have access to a makerbot for a week or two - will it create and print the necessary supports automatically? Are they easy to break off? I want to make this precise part, but have little experience with 3D printing in general.

Supports and print orientation is all managed with slicing software. The printer will not accept these stl files directly. You will need to convert them to cnc language (gcode) using a slicer.
