There is no such thing as a mechanical hydraulic cam. A mechanical cam is the same as a solid. And no its generally not recommended.

Why would you want to do that?

Mechanical cam uses mechanical (solid) lifters.

Hyd cam uses a hydraulic lifter.

I think what you meant to ask is...
Can I use flat tappet hydraulic lifters on a flat tappet solid lifter cam and the answer is no.
