Chesler T5 door lock

I have a Chesler T5 lock and was wondering if anyone has ever worked on one of these. I took mine out of a 67 Safari to clean due to knob sticking and found a small spring hanging down inside the mechanism 3/4" long with loops on the ends, trying to figure out where it attaches. Appears it has been taken apart by PO due to screws not tight. Is there a rebuild kit for this style anymore. Found a drawing on the Bargman but doesn't appear to be the same. HELP

Did you ever get an answer or fix for your Lock?
Can you post a picture of it?

Chesler lock

I had a fellow Airstreamer PM me and he sent some pics that helped. I also found this post under Doors and Locks, 1960s Chesler T5 door latch pictorial I think the date range was around 2012. Hope this helps
