looking at pics (forgot to physically check) they look the same, other than than the new ones having a smaller knob, it would work.

Oops, ok so actually looking, it appears the Space Bug Jr./Space Bug does have a slightly smaller diameter spring, it does fit into the Space Bug Jr. plastic backplate and the needle is the same, SB, SB jr., Babe Bee, etc.

Lol, years ago when I raced Q500, I was talking to Dubb Jett on the phone and he remarked "Anything will work right, once!" I thought that was a pretty cool saying and quickly adopted it.

I think there's Cardinal fans and non-Cub fans saying that this morning!

I went to a couple of Cardinals games in 1998-99, once some colleagues, my wife and myself even got into the "box" rented by our customer. Saw McGwire hit a couple of home runs Cool Fireworks

One of my favourite sayings is "90% of the time it works every time" lol!

About the spring thing, aren't some of the product engine springs smaller diameter than a regular Bee item? Postage stamp engines seem to have smaller springs, I think, not sure if they will fit a Space Bug jr. though.
