Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Buffalo, Dayton, wire wheel hubcap latch spring

Does anyone know of a source for the spring that goes inside the hubcap on a Buffalo or Dayton wire wheel hubcap? This spring keeps tension on the safety latch that keeps the hubcap from coming off.
I figure McMaster-Carr May have something but I am not sure of the diameter and what type of wire, piano wire?

Thanks

.080 spring wire will do it. Shaped like a C , one end has a small bend in it to insert in the hole one the side. Hope this helps. Buffalo cap
