As long as it has a FORTRAN IV compiler the biggest problem would be memory size. I remember porting ADVENT (the Jack Pike version) in the late 70s, it wanted 40K memory and the ICL system I was using had 25K max. Took a lot of tweaking with DA files to hold the message arrays but I got there in the end! As long as their system has 24-32K it should be doable. Happy memories!
