Hi guys!, if u remember me, im on my way to restore an MKIII 1948 douglas

thing is, engine stopped working like a year ago, and no one wants to check it cuz its too old, and noone knows how it works, so I got a new engine for my bike
thing is, this "new" engine is working, but it doesnt have its serial number, and also i got my number form my green card, and my engine has its serial number

question is, can i switch half engine cage, the part with the serial number, without having any risk? or do i have to work on something to make it work?

will add some photos to try to explain.

this is a pic of my engine, not dismantled yet

and this is a pic of my new engine

and this is how my original engine is now

i need to replace the half engine cage, can i just change it and it will work?

sorry for my english, but i really love this
