8 spd. crank with 6 speed rear?Jusme

Will a Sora crank (specially designed for 8 speed per catalog) be okay with a six speed set up in the rear?
I'm upgrading an older bike.
Also do friction shifters care if the crank now is double and the new crank is triple?

Thank ye, thank ye

Friction shifters can pretty much do anything! 8 speed crankset will work fine, 9 speed may not work as well.
