Parts identification help, please

What are these? The first photo shows a group of springs, with a quarter alongside for size reference. The second photo shows a single spring, with the same 25 cents for size reference.

I am still sorting through boxes and boxes of parts since our household move, and every once in a while I find something such as these springs, which I cannot identify with any certainty.

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

Second photo is a clutch linkage return spring.

Some of the springs are from Mech fuel pumps.

The Conical is most likely a fuelpump.... the others are Starter Solenoid?


Bottom looks like common Throttle / Linkage return spring...but for what I do not know.

The larger springs look like those that are put behind the door panel at the window cranks and door handles. The other spring looks exactly like the throttle return spring on my 1962 Chevrolet Carter AFB used on my 327 C.I. engine.

Probably not, but a possibility that the bottom spring could be a rear parking brake cable return spring. For which model I couldn't say.

Bottom spring is similar to my Camaro's carb return spring. Mine is green and that us about the only difference without knowing length. Looks weak for a clutch return spring.

None of the other springs are door handle / window crank handle springs. These shown are too tall and don't have the right vertical profile. Don't look strong enough for starter solenoid from the 2 I have seen. Have to go with fuel pump for the one Matt id'd. Don't have a clue for the others. Donna said she didn't see any of these springs on the cars we stripped.

Bottom spring looks more like one that goes under seat on adjustment release handle - assists moving seat in forward direction. Doesn't appear to be beefy enough for clutch linkage.

Ooo, I like MonzaJPD61's seat adjustment spring theory! As others have surmised, that spring is too strong to be a throttle return spring and too weak to be a clutch return spring.

I also like Junkman's door handle/window crank theory, because I kinda thought that's what they were. But they're not all the same, so some of the other suggestions have to remain in play.

This is a door handle / window handle tension spring.
