Craftsman 536887000 Time!

So I just got a 536.887000 Craftsman with a 32" clearing path and 10hp tecumseh engine! FOR FREE! So plans for it are new carb (don't feel like rebuilding), new tires, fresh oil, new plug, and hopefully start it! Previous owner said it ran when he parked it and it turns over with compression.

2 things I am having trouble with.

I have purchased a new Oregon brand replacement carb and now what to order some tires. There doesn't seem to be a size on the sidewalls. Any idea what this model takes? It has a rather turf looking tread and I want to go aggressive V-tread so I can ditch the chains.

Also, which electric start conversion fits my engine? It is tecumseh 143786062 but I don't know if I see a kit on eBay for this exact engine.

Scratch the first question - the tire size was dry rotted into the tire as 4.80x4.00x8. But still need info on electric starter conversion please.

A picture of the engine would help, but if I had to guess, it's Tecumseh 33329.

Larry.
db130 is correct, 33329 c, d or e will fit your 10 hp HM100-159140M Tecumseh motor. This is the service manual for future repairs.

It is hard to see from your pictures, does your flywheel have a ring gear on it? If not, then you will also need a new flywheel.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro 421-E (38585) 2008 (New Owner)
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

HM100 159140M

I can see the "this engine is provisioned for an electric starter" decal on the recoil starter, I think he's good to go with the flywheel with teeth.

Sorry dbert, we always seem to post a minute before or after each other.

db130, good eye.

Hard to beat that deal! My favorite four-letter "F" word!

Thanks to all!

An update:

Bought an electric start kit, 2 xtrac 4.80-8, new oregon carb, and will probably dump some fresh 15W-40 in there too. Will update with pics and hopefully an update that she starts!
