I fixed mine...the tab of pot metal that the spring compresses against was broken. JB weld worked great! Also, I replaced my roll pins because they had elongated the holes in the shaft. I replaced them with split pins from Ace Hardware for .20 cents each. The split in the shaft allows it to compress during entry into the pilot hole and expand and tighten up when installed. So far, so good...the latch assy. works great!
