Longfields will work fine....the bell is slightly larger diameter and the shaft slightly shorter. You'll need to completely disassemble the knuckle and take your 4-1/2" angle grinder inside to open things up a tad until the Longfield fits in there...then, when you reinstall your lockouts, instead of a circlip on the end of the birfield you'll instead use a fender washer and bolt thru the threaded end.

I run em on my 77 housing with no problems.
