I have no detailed knowledge on this particular subject but many years ago, in my ignorance, I installed a (short cage) Crane on my 78 GJ (with Huret dropouts) and rode it that way off and on for the next 30 years; and wasn't aware of any issues. A couple of years ago I switched to a short cage Cyclone, mainly for "correctness". I still have the GJ and the Crane, if any further research is needed.
