I think it will, these things come in fairly standard sizes.
Admittedly it was just an IEC320 plug, not one with a built-in filter,
but I found a generic plug from the local electroncis shop was a
fit as a replacement for a broken one in an HP9820 calcluator made over
25 years earlier. No cutting, filing or drilling needed.
Just for the sake of accuracy, IEC 320 is a specification covering
numerous styles of plug/socket connector combinations.
The common pair used with electronic equipment (one of the pairs
specified in IEC 320), is the C13 (female outlet) and C14 (male inlet)
I scavenge C14 chassis inlets from dismantled equipment for use in
projects, and the chassis hole size and screw spacing for the plain
form (unfiltered/unfused) has been quite uniform and substitutable
across dozens of examples IME. Finish details such as beveled or curved
edges may differ between manufacturers. There are two hole sizes
possible in the chassis depending on whether the unit is mounted from
the outside or inside.
Filtered units may have a slightly larger chassis hole size from the
plain form when mounted from the outside due to the filter housing.
