Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. To convert it you would need to replace the flywheel to one with teeth and install a starter , most snowblower electric starters are the type you plug a extension cord in . Tecumseh used to sell a electric starter kit but if your motor is a clone engine it will be harder to find what is needed

The engine is made by LCT liquid combustion technology.

This looks like the starter , this isn't including needing a replacement flywheel with teeth .

There is a chance your engine has the flywheel already but you would have to remove the engine cover and feel the underside of the flywheel for teeth. If it doesn't have teeth on the bottom part number you would need is 04151 . Here is a link to the flywheel
