The same spring broke on my 201. (Sorry, don't have the part #)

Mine broke right at the point where the spring "hooks" through the hole. I was able to heat the end with a propane torch, and re-bend a new hook into it. Then I grease the contact point, and put it back together. It's been fine for over a year.

If you need a new one, I would e-mail that photo to Phil at PartsShop (click on the tab at the top of this page). I'm sure he can help you out.

Good luck.
