Ignition key spring return on a 71 Mach 1

I have a problem with my 71 Mach 1 ignition key lock cylinder. It will not spring back to run when you start it, it stays all the way forward. I had to replace the key lock cylinder and now it has no spring return. There are two bent wire/springs in there. They look like they are the size of paper clips. Anyway, if anyone knows how I can fix this, or where I can get newer return springs, I would appreciate the help.

Thanks
John

Best bet I can currently think of right now is to check a junk yard. If you can get inside the ignition to replace these (or at least compare them) it might give you a better idea on the cause of malfunctioning at least.

Good thought, if I can find a nearby junk yard with 71-73 Mustang, I will do just that.

Thanks
