OK, so i got the hm100 to fire and it will be going on my MF8. question is what do i have to do to add electric start to it? My mf8 had it but when motor was replaced wires were cut and now the hm100 doesn't have it. is it as easy as adding a starter or is it more involved? Thanks in advance...

You need the flywheel with ring gear, a starter motor, mounting holes are probably in the block already, and you need a charging circuit, stator, regulator, for the battery.
Some flywheels will have the magnets in them for the charging circuit but snow blower flywheels have 120volt starter so they will have no magnets.
I'm pretty sure all the parts from a HM80 fit the HM100.

The flywheel has the ring gear and magnets, the shroud has a knock out for the starter, like eletric start was an option for it. pretty sure the regulator is still on the tractor. I post some pics soon

The flywheel,ring gear, and magnet. also solid state module?

and the voltage regulator.
Am I correct in all of this? If so all i need is the starter motor which i have seen on ebay new for about $50. Good price or no?

Being the flywheel has the ring gear, then likely the stator magnets are inside the flywheel. The magnet in the pic is ONLY for the ignition, not for charging. But, likely there is no stator coil under the flywheel. Looks like you will need to get just a stator.

I have a spare HH100 which I would assume will fit. I can't promise it works though.

Best bet get a blown-up parts engine that has starter and charging circuit in it.

Mainly cover shipping and if it works send a couple bucks my way. Like Doug said though you might want to try your luck finding a blown engine to rob the parts from. Scrapyard could be a good place to find one.
