151AL to 592A can it work?

I picked up a 592A ringer that's in excellent working/looking condition. My question is can I use it for a subset for my 151AL ? It has  "R"  "K"  "BK"  "E" connections. I'm currently using a old 500 stripped down for a subset.
I'm a tube radio guy but love phones too.


This is an extension ringer, not a subset. It does not have an induction coil or the second condenser needed for a 151AL.

Thanks for the quick response. I kinda thought so...but was wondering if it was possible.
