Default Spring for Murray Town Sedan Door Latch

Just took ulpholstery off drivers door to fix door latch. Problem is the broken coiled spring in the latch mechanism. The vendors have a kit with 3 springs and 3 rivets for $50. Does anyone know where I can buy just one coiled spring. It is a Terro latch. Thanks in advance

I think Mac's has individual springs. You may have to look at their V-8 catalog. I think the same coil springs were used in some of the early V-8 latches.

Search the swap meet section. Someone had some latch springs for most models.
