Pan springs can be used, but the O.D. is slightly larger than a Knuck so they rub on the tins more. The stock replacement Kibblewhite Knuckle springs are the best I've found (and you can buy springs only - without the collars). Last time I checked a set of Taiwan Ted's Knuck springs they had less pressure than a set of 65+ year old worn out stock springs.
