Seems a lot of the original question was lost in translation.
You basic question is will the engines be a direct swap? That answer is yes. I am assuming that the Cub he is trading in has chassis issues if you are going to swap mills? If so then $1,500.00 is probably too much for just a usable engine. If the Cub is a complete runner and the tins are good, superstructure/chassis is good and rubber is good, then $1,500.00 may be a fair price - depending on your area.
I would be looking for a parts tractor with a good mill but the rest in trouble to use as a donor and maybe use this one that you are contemplating taking in on trade. One never has too many Cubs

Gotta agree with Rudi if the game plan is just for a usable engine. $1500- will probably get your engine 100% rebuilt at your local machine shop, if the engine requires a lot of machine work and new pistons, etc.. Depending on machine work and new parts required, perhaps quite a bit less than $1500-.
If you just need a good running engine and don't or can't do the mechanical work required, contact the advertisers in the for sale/wanted section of this site.
I have an excuse. CRS.
Keep in mind that if you don't want to trade with the guy; I've got the 154 loboy engine that runs good that I'll sell for MUCH less than $1,500. That includes me removing it from the tractor after you hear it run. I'm only about 20 minutes from you. If you're intrested, PM me.
