I had mine break few years back - the one in the acutator. The loop at the end of the spring broke off. I just took the needle nose pliers and extender one of the coils from the spring and looped it. Havent had any issues since.

I noticed parts source carries those springs. Havent inquired about the sizes but have seen some of the larger ones there.

Thanks, that's what I did for a short term fix. I did find a box of 200 pieces of spring from Princess Auto for $12, will get that box this week.
