@g01df1sh

Perhaps there is something in this assortment that would be a direct fit or could be modified to do so.

@g01df1sh

In a Tac-2 we used to put the springs under a weight like a chair over night.

Cleaned the contacts, a bit outside with a screwdriver, a little vaselinspray.

Still works.

@g01df1sh,

Let me guess. Joystick does not hold trim settings and won't stay centered? Maybe bad pots, the center of travel wears out on the resistor.

@QuikSanz

one spring has a kink in it so does not spring back straight away.

@g01df1sh,

In that case, a quick search of small springs brings up stuff like this:
