I've had good luck with Bert's, Bratton's, and Snyder's parts. I rebuilt my 29 Tudor latches about 15 years ago, and think the spring kit came from Bratton's. They fit perfectly, and with all the moving parts well greased, my doors close perfectly.

I've always had good luck with Berts but the tension on these springs is way too tight and they do not fit well. I'm going to give Steve a call this week.

Checking the vendors:
Berts A48535 $5.00
Snyders A-46125 $6.00
Mikes A46125 $5.75
Brattons 32060 $14.95 - maybe these are the good ones?
