Need help finding gear shift lever spring retainer, please -- HVDA install up-date.

Fellow Forum Members: My HVDA project is progressing slowly, but well. Ready to button up tranny install, but found a horribly worn, beyond use,
gear shift spring retainer.

This is for a 1974 TR6. The part is the domed shaped cap that goes directly down onto the spring that slides over the gear shift lever.
Current suppliers are not providing this part. It is described as N/A.

I post the following to further identify the needed part: https://www.mossmotors.com/Shop/ViewProducts.aspx?PlateIndexID=32768

The part number is: 848-170, "Key" item 5.

I believe I can buy this part from wayyyyy across the pond, but I am anxious to complete the HVDA installation. Please let me know if anyone
has a handle on this part.

Lastly, I did see a complete "gear shift unit" on Ebay for $109. Sounds like I am buying parts I don't need there.

If anyone can be of help, please let me know.

Yes that part in all the TR3-6 is the same. Likely the same for TR 2 as well. I Found one on eBay for a TR3 shift lever to put on a TR6 tranny.

I noticed that the Moss part number is different for TR4 vs TR6 but that may just be a matter of you have to drill an extra hole or you end up with an extra hole.

Oh, and that eBay listing has a 'make an offer' option. Since the dude has 4 of them available I would be tempted to offer a bit less. I have had success with the 'offer' option on eBay and the seller can always counter-offer if you aim too low.
