angled lock (45 degree) with 82-086

A friend from HI says:
I have an angled lock in a roughly 3" mortise that looks a lot like 82-218 and is longer within the frame (possibly the 3-11/16").
I'm hoping this handle 82-086 fits in the existing angled lock. The lock is not vertical. Is the angled vs. vertical lock detail important for fitting this handle 82-086?

The 82-086 looks like a promising replacement as long as the hole spacing matches the 3-15/16" measurement of ours but I'd like to see a photo of your mortise lock as well to confirm. Thank you!
