Figured you would be familiar with McMaster-Carr. This page on 'disc springs' may have what you are looking for:

For those of you that are not familiar with McMaster-Carr, they are one of the largest industrial suppliers out there.... they have nearly everything! We buy from them weekly for work-related supplies (my workplace is an Engineering/manufacturing facility).
Other industrial suppliers include Graingers, MSC and Fastenal.

You can get those in a Hurst shifter tune-up; rebuild type kit.
