Simplex Help

I'm looking to see if anyone has suggestions on replacement springs for Simplex Criterium RD? I could always get a replacement but looking for alternate ideas as well. Thanks for any help.

I would salvage from a dead parts pile. I keep a number of carcasses laying around for just this reason. There may be other brands to use? But I've never needed to.

Best part: The local co-op has bins loaded with incomplete Simplex mechs.

Same problem here with a simplex sx 410 t that came stock on a PXN 10. I've been told that suntour wheels will work. I found a cheap one (one dollar) on eBay and it should be here soon.
