Freewheel compatibility

I have an '86 Cannondale equipped with Suntour Superbe Pro components -- but the seven speed freewheel is Sachs Maillard.

The 15t cog -- the one I generally use for straight and level -- is toast.

I see lots of suntour freewheels for sale on eBay and elsewhere. Can I assume that the hub threads that accomodate the freewheel are pretty much the same over most mainstream manufacturers?

Thanks!

Yes, but you're best off buying a new freewheel.
