Hi Everyone
I bought a John Deere 1032 and I'm looking to repair and recondition it for the winter that will soon be apon us. I know it needs auger drive belts, I replaced oil and plug. The machine was mostly unused looks like it just sat, I cleaned it and she runs like a top. I would like to see if anyone has a repair/parts manual for it so I know general maintance, things I should check and parts I will need, if anyone has one please let me know.
Thank you.
Mark

Welcome to the forum. I just sold one of those. It's a beast. There is a grease fitting up inside that you need to grease. JTclays is the guy you want to ask. He seems to know quite a bit about them and Ray as well. They'll probably be along in a bit to point you in the right direction.

I believe the 1032 is Ariens or possibly a Frontier blower. Murray didn't make a 1032 for J.D. at least I don't think they did.

Mark, I just bought a 826 a month ago and am pretty much 'done' going through it. I changed oil in it tonight, added new fuel line and filter, will get it finished up tomorrow night hopefully. I am assuming your 1032 will be alot like my 826 just bigger and more power (trust me I'd love a 1032 being the big boy, but so far enjoy the 826).

Here is the link I've been adding to/asking question with the help from members: http://http://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum/john-deere-snowblowers/27241-1980-john-deere-826-general-questions.html

Read through it, should help. I forgot to add pics towards the end when I greased it and lubed things, and replaced the wheel bushing, took differential apart and cleaned/added new grease, then added new roller chain.

Mine is a 1983 btw - what year is yours?

The number on the back of the frame is PO32J 120009 M
I bought it at an auction for $145. thought I couldn't go wrong because it looked hardly used, electric start (which is new to me because I have always had the pull starts and would be dead before it would start), it even had the snow blower cab on it. Well I want to get it fixed properly before running long. I did see there was a few grease points which I will hit. Thank you for all the information.

I have a 49 page operator's manual for a 1986 JD 1026 that includes some information on how to change the belts, adjust the friction wheel etc...which probably would be similar to your model. I'll just need some time to scan it. If interested let me know. These are well built machines.

Mark, do a search on the internet. But for the 826 I found the Tech Manual online and printed it out, it's pretty detailed. Right down to taking the engine apart. PM me if not and I will try to find it for you.

I have looked online and found a few things but not very detailed, maybe I will look up other models and get something better. I ordered belts yesterday and should get early next week so I can get the auger to work better. I would just hate to get out in the snow and have a problem so I want to go over it well. Thank you for all your help. Mark

Hi, I just picked up a JD1032 with serial number M01032X555682. Can you help me identify any information about it? Like others here, looking for service and user manuals. Thank you!

John Deere never had any good service manuals for their snowblowers, they did have parts listings. You might be able to find an aftermarket manual though. They used an engine manual for the engine, and the rest of it was basically done with looking at the owners manual or parts listings because J.D. didn't make their own blowers, they were made by outside companies with the J.D. name on them. They had too many different companies making them so they would have had too many different service manuals, so they decided not to produce the books, just the parts books, and most everything was on their computers at the dealerships so they didn't have to take up space with the books.

I disagree ST1100A, if he has a snowblower from the 80's it's John Deere built, right in Wisconsin. My 1983 826 was built there. John Deere built their own until the mid/late 90's I believe. But if it's an older one yes they made a service manual and a good one at that, I clicked the link above and it still works, and that will tell you everything one should need to do anything to them. I have it printed out and used it quite a bit when going over mine.

That sounds like an Areins built in Brillion Wisconsin. They kept changing manufacturers. The dealership I was at did not have manuals available for them in the 90's early 2000's, that is what we went by.
If you found a site to get the manuals I will have to check it out, thats good that you found them. We were a "5 Star" dealership and could not get the manuals.
