Ice Auger Gum Up Problems

3 posts in this topic

I have a 49cc Magnum III Plus auger with a Tecumsah engine & a Walbro carburator that sat all summer with gas in the tank. I am gearing up for the winter fishing season but I now have a problem getting fuel into the engine. When I try to start it up, there is no fuel going through the fuel line at all. I'm thinking that the fuel got all gummed up over the summer, any thoughts on how to fix this? I opened up the carburator but it looked clean. I didn't take it completely off, just opened up the choke flap but I did take a look at one of the gaskets and again, it all looked clean. Any suggestions? Thanks

I believe there is a screen/filter in the gas tank on some of these augers. I would drain the gas out of the tank and spray some carb cleaner in the tank. I would unhook the gas line going to the carb.

I have the same auger. I drain the gas every year and run the engine till it dies.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
