Default 77 windshield on 82?

Fellas,

Will a factory windshield from a 1977 sportster be a direct fit my 1982?

Seems the 2 large phillips screws on either side of the fork will accommodate a factory windshield across a wide range of years in the Ironhead run?

Any insight appreciated.

I went the other way, a late model to my `72.
ower phillips worked fine but the top mount was 1 -1/4 lower than the phillips screws in the upper tree. Quick disconnects and a emt conduit shim. hardware kit was 58164-96A 39mm
