Default switching cams

Been awhile since I;ve been on this forum. I;ve been riding the panhead more then my other bikes this summer. But back to the question I have can I swap the cams from a 82 xlh Andrews intake elebrock exhaust to a 77 xlh? I know I will have to run a electric tach; but will there be problems along the way? I built the 82 for my son but he likes my 77 better so we swapped this summer. The 82 just been sitting in the garage and with winter coming its project time again. The 77 has stock cams with 10 to 1 weisco pistons s/s e carb and cycle shack mufflers. thanks!!!!

the lack of a tachometer drive gear on '81>up is the only difference i'm aware of from the '71-'80.
