If you have similar focal length lenses, go for it. You'll have to get a groundglass to optically confirm both infinity as well as alignment of the lens to the focal plane but it can certainly be done. You'll almost certainly have to make a fine adjustment depending upon the ctual focal length of your lens to your film plane. It's easier to add shims than it is to make that lens sit closer to the focal plane though, just in case you're in love with using a certain body for this project.
If you have a coupled rangefinder on this thing, I wouldn't do it just because of the aforementioned headache then having to calibrate the focusing system to the lens.
