283 crankshaft into 283

My 265 crankshaft has gone (worn out). Can I use a 283 crankshaft? The stroke is the same, right? Maybe It will need some balance?

Tho there would some slight imbalance, the swap is ok. In the day, it was common. Like present day 305 and 350 crank swap. Slight imbalance, but on street engine nobody will notice..
