You might, if they'll fit.  The engines are near enough in displacement so that the size of the starter motor shouldn't be an issue. The 35hp engine doesn't care where the parts were before. If they fit, and you can make all of the necessary wiring and mechanical connections, you should have a happy electric start 35hp Johnson.
