I have 8 speed cogs wondered if 8 would fit onto a 7 speed body?

Yes they should. At least you have a 50/50 chance.

SOME 7-speed Aris freewheels are 6-speed with the smallest sprocket screwed into the next-smallest, which functions as lockring.

MOST are 7-speed with the smallest sprocket cog functioning as lockring.

8-speeds are ALWAYS 7-speed freewheels with the smallest sprocket screwed into its neighbour, which functions as lockring.

Telling the difference between the 2 is quite tricky.

If needs be, I have a NOS spare 8-speed freewheel with no sprockets.
