Attic Door

I have an attic door with fold down stairs. The door and stairs are controlled in the attic with large cement and iron counter weights (from 1925). My problem is that recently one of the counter weight arms lost it's balance or got bent. Therefore, the only way to keep the attic door closed is to screw it to the ceiling. Can the weights be removed and replaced with anything not so difficult for a 55 yr. old single woman?
