Electric starter JD 826

Hello all,

Last year I saved a JD 826 from the scrap yard, spent a few bucks to get it working. Looking to put electric start on it. It did have a starter on it at one time, but was missing when I picked it up. Every place I went to, has given me different information as to which kit can go on it, to there is "nothing available". One place had a kit for $205 (ouch)

It has a 8hp Tecumseh model HM80 155317L, serial 6134C.


Thanks in advance for the help

Different Tecumseh engines use different starters. Possibly a picture of that area will help. You may need to search for the engine and try to identify which starter it will use.

Which JD 826 is it? JD? JD "D"? JD "TRS"? I have a JD 1032 and a JD 826D. The TRS is a Murray made machine which I also have several Murray made Noma and Craftsman.

1986 Ariens ST522, 5hp, 22"
1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front
Gravely Convertible, 12hp Kohler cast iron, 26" width, 600 lbs of cast iron & steel, 2 speed impeller, 4 ground speeds
Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale
Several other 5hp, 8hp, several 2 cycle, all for sale

As you do your research I would take a look at the Tecumseh 33329E electric starter. I would be willing to bet that might be the one you need. Search eBay and you will see many of them out there. Compare those to the mounting position for the starter and the start button.

Here is a diagram of your engine. Take a look at the drawing of the starter and compare to the 33329E.

One thing I have learned is that living richly is less about the net worth on your bank statement and more about the value of the lessons you offer those who want to learn from you.

I agree wit evh, 33329 is the Tecumseh part number. The letters C-D or E after it just indicate versions. Here is listing on eBay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tecumseh-Snow-Blower-Starter-33329-33329C-33329D-33329E-37000-NEW/283263299094?epid=13010730639&hash=item41f3ceee16: g:PpcAAOSwvD5aH2mB:rk:6f:0


You are sure that the engine has a toothed flywheel. Some members have tried adding electric start, only to find they needed a new flywheel also.(That's an expensive upgrade)

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
