The next piece to replace is the "kicker" spring. This is not a hard job if you have the right tools. All I needed was a length of 10 gauge sinuous wire spring (it comes in big long rolls) and two hand held spring benders which come in sets of two. Then I simply bent the spring to the right shape. The end of the spring goes into a hole in a tab, and then another tab is bent down on top of the spring to hold it in place. It is then attached to the spring assembly with more 3 prong edgewire clips.
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
