It's been done (you end up with a spinning shaft sticking out of the end), they're the same diameter and will accept the same pulley. A little-known fact is that Type III generator brushes are subtly different than Type I (the notch for the spring is angled the opposite way, one's 11 004 and the other's 11 008) because the brushes are at the opposite end and so from their point of view the commutator is turning the other way...but in practice you can get away with either.
