Cylinder bolt for 1851 Navy

I have a half decent 1851 Navy sn 97xxx with the Hartford address. It functioned very well until recently when it started locking up every other cocking cycle until finally locking up totally.

Having dismantled the pistol, and then having subjected the frame/cylinder assembly to various tests, we have determined that the bolt is probaly at fault, possibly incorrect. One friend has opined that the bolt is possibly from a SAA.

My question is, If it transpires that the bolt is "wrong" or broken i some minute way, where does one find a good replacement? The one in the Numrich kit doesn't appear to be suitable.
