Default clutch return spring? turbo vs non turbo 240?

is there any difference in clutch return springs between turbo 240 and non turbo? my turbo had the clutch return spring changed to a lighter touch spring because the PO had MS and could not push the clutch in. need a Turbo clutch spring or will any return spring work??

Here's some info on clutch return springs from another thread.

There are 5 different clutch return springs for 240 and they are all still available.

1228794 is for '75 models with M40/M41 trans.

1229010 is for models with M45/M46 - '76

677531 is for models with M45/M46 '77- excluding 4 cyl turbo, diesel

1329545 is for models with M47

1229969 is for 4 cyl turbo & diesel models

Flat flywheel models used a pedal return spring that pull the pedal up. Dog dish flywheel models didn't use a fork return spring and the pedal spring pushes the pedal to the floor.

Then there's this tidbit from the '81 New Car Features greenbook that contradicts the previous info since '81 would still have a flat flywheel.
