I'm looking for what I'm going to call the ratchet pins and springs for the inside of the House hub cap. Is there anyone making parts for the House caps?

What I'm calling the "pins" are kind of "L" shaped brass that slide in the cap and are beveled on the end that "ratchets" in the teeth on the hub. The springs are wire, kind of horseshoe shaped that hold the "pin" in the teeth of the hub.
