Is there replacement, or rebuild kits for 1967 A Body hood hinge & springs?

My car's hinges are a flopping mess. I had the hood off for an engine pull, and after installing hood it would not come out of the full open position without screwing around with a small length of one by board to keep passenger's side hinge in line to allow hood to be closed. Seams the coiled spring closes tightly on its self and becomes for lack of better description locked up and able to uncoil.

If no new parts are available is there a shade tree mechanic fix? for this problem.
