The short answer is yes, in a pinch.

You may have to change the drive dog on the compressor, but the shaft is the same.  The only real variables are the compressor capacity and whether it is a truck compressor or an Eagle compressor.  Truck compressors have the discharge and intake ports on the opposite side -- you can re-work the air connections to accomodate that if you have to, though.

The drive dog is pretty easy to change -- one bolt on the end of the shaft.  Use a puller to pull it off of the shaft.  The mounting is the same on both, though.
