I see no reason why this wouldn't work.

OP, I've only owned one Yugo.
But, I believe all use the same type.
I know all my others, including Chinese, use the same one.
You should be able to tell by looking where "most" upper HGs are milled to fit the spring on the edges.
Just an idea.

All of the retainer springs are the same as the horse shoe bends in the lowers.

Go into your local gun store and see if they have one for a gift or sale.

I put a regular AK upper handguard retaining spring in my Yugo, fits perfectly. Origin is unknown, but I would guess East German based on the other ak parts the guy was selling.
