Short answer yes, long answer yes but not identical. Somewhere along the line the head castings did change slightly but dimensionally they are identical and they can be swapped over.

Just make sure the replacement head doesn't have any cracks in it between the valves. I've not seen one myself but I'm told it's a common enough problem.
