Not in Delphi 2.0...the TPU is 16 bit compiled code...(I would bet you can't do it in Delphi 1 either...)

No you can't.  Delphi and Turbo Pascal are both very backward incompatible with their object files for every single version.  This is the reason why libraries with source code became very popular in the PC world.  You really must have the source.
