Hello have cleaned up a wc41 Pintle hook but is missing the spring. Any insight as to what I need?

It is a coil spring, 1-1/16 inches in diameter and about 2-1/4 inches long. I had to disassemble the thing to remove and replace the spring. There is a centering cone on the bottom of the latch and a retaining lip on the housing, so It takes a little finesse to get it in. Image
