9 speed friction with 6 speed cassette

I have some 9 speed dura-ace downtube shifters, is there any reason they would not work with a 6 speed cluster when in friction mode?

Also, I will most likely also be using a 9 speed derailler so will I run into issues with the stop screws limitations?

Thanks!

Nope - you're fine, I'm running top mount 9 speed with 6 speeds.
