Probably but I'll ask a first day Sutherlands question and ask, ya
know that cup is 'correct threaded, right? Lefty-loosey?
Plus any bike shop around with a proper Campag or other fixed cup
removal tool?

But measure the BB spindle bearing races of the 2 spindles and if they
are the same, grease, add bearing balls, install and adjust. As long
as the left cup doesn't go way into the frame, lockring can be
installed, BB adjusted, chainline OK, probably just fine.
