It's definitely not the same spring.

70181 is from 1983 (for the newer, larger 73367 FORK-LIFT TRUCK), while 74603 FORK-LIFT TRUCK (the one being shown here) dates as far back as 1972.

Plus, I did some measurements for Philo at his request. Smile  

The older spring is actually of a larger diameter, and is shorter.

In addition to the spring, there are connection points missing from the platform and the standard for the spring to attach to.  I gave Philo some reference photos and suggestions (one could "cheat" and just use a cylinder at the top, even though the shape is more like a box with the top two edges rounded off. The peg on the platform is a lot more involved, if one wants to sweat the details.)
