[WTB] Karmann Ghia Convertible Top Crank Handle screw   Price: $30
Where can I buy the screw for the knob on a Karmann Ghia Convertible Top Crank Handle?

I bought one of these:
So, now I have a new, repro. crank assembly, and the original 1964 assembly minus the screw. Apparently, the screw and the knob need to be a matched set. The dimensions of the knob are different, internally and externally. The original is 17 mm tall, while the repro. is 18 mm tall. Also, the original assembly included a spring, which the repro. assembly does not. However, the threaded hole in the crank itself seems to be the same in both cases.

Given that the repro. part is $200, and I got the original crank rechromed and it must be worth something, I'm looking at one of two options:
1) Find an original-type screw. Unfortunately, I don't have one to measure.
2) Find another new-type screw & knob that I can use to complete either one of my assemblies so that maybe I can recoup some of my investment in this.
