Proto2000 GP18 brushes

I'm looking for a replacement spring and brush set for a HO Scale Proto2000
GP18. I'm only missing one spring, but might as well replace everything so
it's all even.
The GP18 has the same motors as the GP7's, GP20's, GP30's, GP60's and GP9
III.
I'm not against purchasing another engine with something else wrong to get
the motor parts. (I checked eBay, all that showed up was complete
engines.)

Check with Walther's. They own Life like.

I forgot to mention I already checked with Walthers. They gave me the list of compatible motors, but said the motor assembly was sold out.

Proto 2000 support sure ain't like it was when Life Like ran the show.

Any chance there's a Local Hobby Shop somewhere near you? That's where I'd check; maybe they have a stash of spare parts.

There's one nearby, but I don't get the impression he keeps a lot of spare parts.
I wonder if the Athearn motor springs would work. Gotta take apart a SW1200 motor and find out.
Imagine that... The inferior model once again repairing the superior one. (Already had to buy Athearn gears.)
