I have a local hardware store (remember them?) that has a couple of drawers
full of replacement springs.  Looks like the spring in question is used to
hold the brushes against the commutator enough so they don't bounce, but
not so much that they grind the brushes away.  A light touch... Finding an
appropriate spring (or something that will work) ought not to be much of a
problem.  Making the "ears" is a trivial exercise left to the reader.  ;)
