Part number, please

Can someone get me a part number for an electric starter for a Briggs 8hp?

Here are the numbers exactly as seen on the casing:

HM80-155316N SER 8169D

Thanks.

Yea, post a picture. I bet someone someone somehow adapted a Tecumseh engine shroud on your engine, because those are Tecumseh numbers.

Wait a minute... why did I think that was a Briggs? I just looked at it and it doesn't say Briggs anywhere. But theres no Indian head either. I know no one switched the shrouds because it was bought brand new about 15 years ago.
Heres a pic.

So assuming it's a Tecumseh, what is the part number for the starter?

It is a Tecumseh.

Part # TEC-33329E

Are you sure you have a ring gear on the flywheel?

12 volt starter or 120 volt ac starter?

Breakdown does not show this engine to have an electric starter on it originally, may need a starter ring on the flywheel.

Yes, it's equipped for a starter. I'm replacing the old one because it doesn't work anymore. It's the kind you plug into a wall outlet and press the button.

The item on ebay is what you need. It is Tecumseh part number 33329E. It will include the starter, starter button, mounting hardware and extension cord. The "buy it now" price is very reasonable but I see they only have four left and if you strike out with this deal your local Tecumseh shop should have one to sell you. By the way, this is a 1988 engine and I see it is an ST824 Ariens. This is a nice machine and worth keeping going for years to come, they just don't make them like this one anymore unless you spend big bucks and buy the "Pro" model Ariens throwers and then you'll pay well over 2-grand for one.

Thanks for your help guys. I must say I always assumed this was a Briggs because it doesn't say on the engine anywhere what brand it is. Anyway, they certainly aren't made like this anymore. It's been a great machine and no other snowblower compares to it.
