Tecumseh Starter

Anyone know the amps that a Tecumseh 33290D 120 VAC starter draws at startup. Got a 5hp snowblower that I want to rig to a portable power pack.

I doubt anyone will know that information but stay tuned, you never know. That's something that isn't published in technical manuals and you'd need someone who has happened to test this on their own.

Does R stand for the wattage?

I'm not sure if this is helpful or not but I think it should draw less than 15 amps because it hasn't kicked out my breaker yet.

Starter Motor Amps.

Hopefully this info. will help you. The info is based on housing lenght, measuring just the housing, do not include the head end, and end cap. I believe your starter falls into the 20 amp. category. Motor housing lenght...3-3/8".......24 Max. Amps. 4-3/8"......20 Max. Amps. 4-9/16".......35 Max. Amps. Good Luck.....
