I have read many times that an Italian threaded freewheel can be used on an English threaded hub - just need to start it carefully; but what about headsets? Can I use an Italian threaded headset on an English threaded steerer tube? Are there any problems or long term repercussions of doing so (can't be disassembled and reassembled more than once, etc?)?

Thanks in Advance,
