Yes they are all compatible with the exception of the aluminum head I think the carb angle is wrong. Where are you located?

You probably know but in case not, there are big (later) and small fin (earlier) variants of heads and barrels, also thin and thick flange (on large fin barrels) these are all interchangeable as previously stated, but you may want the correct version for your bike.

You may need longer crankcase studs for thick flange barrels.
