Is the old spring in tact enough that you can compare to what you find at the hardware store? My guess is that given the fact that it could be 50+ years old, the margin of error might be a little more flexible... Why not use the HW store one to get you through, and order the correct part to change when it arrives...

FYI there is currently a part listed on Ebay in Wisconsin. I have no earthly clue if it's close to you, but if it is, maybe you could pick it up?
