The bolt patterns are the same, space should not be a problem going from the OHV to the flat head. The only other thing you should do is physically measure both crankshaft extensions (the part that sticks out the bottom of the engine) making sure that they are the same length, diameter and bolt hole is the same.
The muffler might be a concern depending on how the Cub muffler was oriented.
As in any engine swap there may or may not be some modifications you have to do ie: throttle and choke arrangement, fuel line routing, alternator capacity and wiring etc. so I will say yes it SHOULD fit without modifying the tractor and/or frame and it can "be fitted across different lawn tractor platforms"
