Need a new FD for an old bike

The bike is Raleigh 10speed 199x ? or something,
and I need a new FD b/c the one I have is really bad.
The shifters on this bike are Sachs down tube shifters (they are actually mounted
on the stem).
The question is will a new shimano fit ?

It'll work all right, but you'll have to get the right clamp size. You probably need a 28.6mm (1 1/8").
