Default Which parts of trigger assembly interchange between M14 and M1 Garand?

Items such as springs, hammer, trigger and sear; can they interchange between the M14/M1A and the M1 Garand?

Thanks.

safety, Hammer, Hammer pin, trigger pin, hammer spring housing, hammer spring, trigger - although the sear is different, the Garand trigger is Semi auto only and the M14 sear has an extra extension to work with the full auto components. the trigger body itself is identical

Garand safety/clip ejector spring if you cut the clip ejector portion off will make perfect M14 safety springs. Good use for ones that won't eject garand clips any longer.

Also the older hammer spring housing with wings WON"T fit in an M14 TG

The winter trigger and safety items will interchange as well.

Must respectfully disagree. The winged hamer spring plunger WILL fit and is used in a good M14 / M1A trigger job because it is more stable. The dimensions of the back portion of the M14 TH are the same as the Garand.

I read elsewhere that the M1A TH has to be clearanced a little to fit the winged plunger. Correct?

I had an M14 trigger that the sear was interfering with a dummy selector so I swapped in a Grand trigger, voila, no more problem. The hammer was riding the bolt home so I had a nice single shot.
