John Deere 1032 Snowblower Repower (What Would You Recommend?)

Hey guys, I came across a 1032 in great condition. The 10 HP Tecumseh is blown up, so I'm gonna replace it. Anyone replace one before? Engine recommendation? I'm eyeballing the 8 HP Harbor Freight Predator engine.

welcome to the forum Charlie. the predator will work , but probably will take a few mods to make it happen. however, in my opinion the machine will be grossly underpowered with such a small engine on a 32" bucket.

Welcome Narley. Not sure if you’ve pulled the trigger on that HF engine or not but wanted to add my two cents. I have an Ariens 832 and my Tecumseh never struggles with what I feed it...eod or otherwise. There are tons of threads in the Ariens forum of individuals repowering with the motor your looking at so you may want to review there for any special considerations.

Thanks,
Stone

I put this one on my Ariens 1032 and have been quite happy with it other than the smallish gas tank: https://www.smallenginesuppliers.com...gines1818.html

The HF Predator 420cc would probably be a good choice too. I would not go with an 8-horse engine - as the others have said the machine would probably be underpowered.

The exception to that would be if you live somewhere where snowfalls are generally light (4" or less) but I imagine if that were the case you would not be using a 32" snowblower!

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

That 414 that Elaw posted is a good buy...sure to have enough power.

One thing I should have mentioned: neither engine is exactly perfect for this application (although both will work).

The LCT engine is a "snow engine" and thus has a primer bulb for easy starting in cold temperatures but does not have a throttle* (I added one to mine, which took some creativity). The HF engine on the other hand has a throttle, but no primer and parts aren't enclosed quite as well to keep snow out.

* I'm using the word "throttle" here to mean speed-adjustment control, not the throttle butterfly in the carb. The LCT engine unmodified runs at a constant governed speed which I think is 3600 RPM.

Good morning all!

I pulled the trigger on this Briggs engine. It lined up perfectly, all I had to do was drill some mounting holes in the blower. Can't wait to use it!

20M307-0001 Briggs & Stratton - 1450 Series Snow Intek, Horizontal 3/4"x2-5/16" Shaft, Recoil & Electric Start, 3 Amp Alt, Briggs & Stratton Engine

I bought a new friction wheel for it and I plan on servicing the rear diff this coming summer.

@Narly,

Nice job, … I bet some wax and elbow grease, that thing will clean up nice …

I just noticed that they have a premade plate for mounting that may have worked on your re-power. I will also post it in the re-power section, in case it may assist someone.

Mount-BS-Tec Briggs & Stratton Gas Engines, Horizontal - Engine mount plate, 1/8" thick, to replace Tecumseh HM80-HM110, LH318-LH358, OHM120, OH358SA, OHSK120, OHSK125, OHSK130 with Briggs Intek model "20" and "21" engines, primarily on snow blowers.

Thank you! Yeah, I thought about getting that plate, but opted out and drilling the holes saved money.

Yeah, next year when I take the wheels off, I'll repaint them, maybe get some new knobby tires for it.

Yeah, I have XTrac on just about all my machines, with SnowHogs on the others …. Work great … years ago I tried a set of chains on the lawn tire, bounced the machine horribly bad.

If you don't have one already, pick your self up one of those Harbor Freight mini tire changers, and some real tire lube … works like a charm on all the small rims.
