Default tappet/blocks fitment by year

Will 1980 and/or1981 tappets and blocks fit a 1973 engine? My FPM only goes up to 1978.

I have to pick up a set. My totally dishonest indie has kept my set, I gave them to him along with new rollers to install and he never gave them back to me when I paid for and picked up my crankcase back in the warm months. I'm just discovering this now. There's some other shit he's effed me with too, too numerous to catalog right now. I'm waiting for a callback from him.

It reminds me of the Beanie Baby mania the way people steal and hoard these old Harley parts.
