Steer tube length for a threaded fork is measured from the fork crown race seat to the end of the steer tube. Subtract the length of the head tube and you have the maximum stack height for your headset. If your steer tube is longer than your headset's stack height you can always add washers. If it is shorter, you will need to find a different headset. The shortest headset I'm aware of is 32mm stack. If you don't have that much on your steer tube you will need a different fork with a longer steer tube.
