Ignition Switch For '61 Bambi

Just purchased my first Airstream('61 Bambi) Everything functions fine except for the fridge. The previous owner said it just needs a new ignition switch/sparking mechanism. Does anyone know where to find one?

I have several of them saved from dead fridges. Some are longer than others. All take lighter flints. Match works great IF you have someone inside to press the thermocouple bypass. I'm in Sisters occasionally. PM me your Bend phone and I'll bring a couple along next time. Darol
