I believe the small spring would be a "Firing pin return spring" there's one on my 64.

I would say that you should make sure you are looking at the correct schematic for your year model and if indeed this spring is there you will not want that firing pin left dangling which it will do without that spring.

A Test....if you know how to "Decock" your bolt while out of the gun you could then "Cock" it. And if your firing pin does not (by itself) recede within the bolt face you definitely highly likely will need that spring.
Thanks. Bob Smalser explained it very well before.
