Default 1932 headlight socket same as 1933-34 socket?

I'm restoring my 1934 commercial headlights and have a problem. The spring clip on one of the main bulb sockets popped off and I can not get it reattached. The fiber board in the socket is old (obviously) and it no longer retains the spring clip when you push it into the reflector. After some searching online I can't seem to find anyone selling 1933/34 headlight sockets, but I can find 1932 sockets from numerous vendors. The pictures that I find of the 1932 sockets look very similar if not identical to my 34 socket, but I can't find anyone that know if they will interchange. I realize that the wiring to the headlight is different, but is the socket the same? If not, does anyone know where I can buy a new 1934 correct socket? Thanks for the help.....
