    Is there a difference between recoil springs in 74s and 47s?

    Does the 7.62 round require a stronger recoil spring and thus would cause cycling problems in a 74 built for the 5.45 round?

    No difference. The recoil springs are the same. Some, but not all, 5.56 AK's have slightly stronger springs. The milled receiver AK-47 and the stamped receiver RPK's, both 7.62 and 5.45, have a tube type recoil spring guide. The stamped receiver AKM and AK-74's have a loop type recoil spring guide.
