Broken door lock for 1988 Excella

Our door lock is broken and the handle will not stay secure...we ordered a replacement kit, but it is not the original one and does not fit the opening. Any ideas on how to install the replacement kit or even better, where to get a replacement door handle/lock kit for a 1988 excella?
thank you

This is what my old door lock looks like and this is what I need.

I have a 1988 Excella. My door lock is not working due to a tiny broken part that will be in one of the images. I need that particular part plus an interior door handle that will fit on that part. Or I need the entire door lock kit...I purchase one that does not cover my current hole for the door lock I have and am not satisfied with the look it will have with metal plate covering that hole.

So my needs are an interior door handle and that tiny part or a full door lock kit that will fit...I realize it is not made any longer so looking for something that has been reclaimed.

We had to concoct a new interior handle for our 1988 Excella after the original broke. Fortunately, we did not have the broken shaft that you also have. We made a new handle and posted the basic instructions on the Forums. If you search for 2dogtraveler and look for a post from August 19, 2009, you'll see what we put there. We have more recent photos which we will try to post soon.
