Chris King Headset on a Brompton?

Hi there,

Can anyone out there give tips on replacing a Brompton headset? I'm quite experienced doing it on non-folder but was wondering if there were any tips for a Brompton, and if I can just use a standard headset: threaded? 1 1/8? I read one reference to stack height being critical but that's all I found.
I have a Chris King burning a hole in my parts bin that I'd like to install if its feasible.

Thanks in advance,

Dr. Hans
