67 Sears Suburban, 10 hp Tecumseh HH100

I plowed for the first time, fun and it worked out well.  The next day I tried the disk. I was trying different settings and sudenly it stopped running.  I pulled the recoil, pop....pop, pop.......pop,pop.....pop....pop... I put it in high gear and somehow got it back to the house.  It just didn't want to run.  Funny thing is, hours later, it would still start with just one or two pulls.  My son in law put his hand against the muffler and he could barely feel the pressure.  There was also oil around the head gasket.

Today, I tore it apart and found the intake valve had a broken spring.  Anyone know where to find a new spring?
