Default RV-12 Throttle Return Spring (Vernier Throttle)

I have a Van's supplied Vernier Throttle.
I am not able to find a part number in Van's web site for the now recommended spring.
I realise Van's had some issues with broken springs, and were deciding on the best replacement.
This is all I can find now to indicate the appropriate part to order:,6.pdf

Is the "Spring 00002" the most recent part number for current springs Van's supplies?
Is this what is now recommended to use to minimise risk of broken springs?

As I worked through annual inspection last month I installed a new Vernier control and the springs were included. No specific part number, but I'm sure McFarlane Aviation will know as they were the supplier. Or a call to Vans with your request.

Two flights with the new throttle and I like it!

Just put a pair of McFarlane 6822 springs on to replace broken left spring.

I hope the MacFarlane 6822 springs are the current recommended springs to lessen risk of springs breaking.
