John-the main difference between compressor oil and ordinary engine oil is that compressor oil does not contain detergents, because compressors don't mess up their oil with products of combustion like an engine. The 10W - 40 diesel spec oil you have should be fine, it's just a bit over specified for a compressor that's all.
