Well since so far no one has given you a good answer, here's a mediocre-to-crummy answer, LOL.

First, I'm surprised you have a rewind at all. I have an old Suburban with HH100 (up for sale), and it only has the electric starter/generator, no manual starter. Whatever, if in the end you can't find a proper Tecumseh replacement spring, how about going to the nearby small engine shops and outboard motor shops and see if there's a spring that's close enough to work?

Or if worse comes to worst, start it with a rope. That's how us old guys started all little engines, long ago. In fact, it's how racers of alky-burning outboard racemotors start their engines today, and some of these go well over 100hp, and have lots of compression to overcome.
