Replace Toro 570 Pop-Up Sprinkler Body - or Just the "Guts" ??

Hi, I hope this isn't dumb question about Toro 570 Sprinkler Body - that is now missing the spray head ( nozzle ? ) - and has turned into a fountain instead of a lawn sprinkler.

Can I just unscrew the "guts" of old sprinkler body (the spring, pop-up, and seal) - and replace that with the "guts" of new Toro 570 Sprinkler Body - without digging up the lawn and removing the old Toro 570 Sprinkler Body's hollow plastic shaft ??

I bought a new Toro spray head to go with the new Toro 570 Sprinkler Body, so I can do it either way. Am just trying to save some time if possible.

Give it a try and see what happens.
I wont go into detail but the 570 has been redesigned a few times over the years. Some are compatible, some aren't.
The older the existing sprinkler the less chance it'll work...
Anything made the last 20 years or so it should work... Don't quote me on the timeline...
Save the old spring just in case the new sprinkler wont pop up...
