source for shaft-mount return spring on dual side drafts

See photo (not my car). I'm trying to find the throttle return spring that mounts on the shaft of the linkage that connects the two carbs. The shaft in my linkage is 10mm with a circular profile. I've seen these mounted on Japanese cars (usually Datsuns), often on a shaft that has a D-profile.

Anybody have a source? Thanks. --Kevin

Buy a regular tension-spring at Home Depot and modify it.

The return springs on the carburators should be suficient. If you feel that the throtal is not returning to idle as fast as it should I would look at the rest of your linkage and see if it is binding anywhere. I am attaching a link I think item 17 or 18 are what you are looking for.
