      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Carb kit foR old Stikemaster?

Question

Dan Brelje

Hey guys, I have no idea about small engine repair so i came looking for help. My father just found his old strikemaster auger and thinks we could get it running again. I need to pick up a few things and a carb kit is one of them. Are there different kinds of carb kits? Where can you get them? How much do they cost?

Any other suggestions about getting a 20+ yr old auger running would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Its a Walbro carb. On the outside you'll see which model carb by a stamp in the body. Give that Make and Model # to a small engine shop and they'll get your the kit.

I'll assume its a Mag III (Ope). If you can't find the model carb you have let me know.

Tips to get it going. Fresh mixed gas, new spark plug and carb cleaning and kit. Might want to the chipper blade sharpened.

Spent some time on the auger tonight and we got it to fire. However, once running it would quickly die. I do not think that it is getting gas through the carb, or if it is even pulling gas all together. Going to take more of a look tomorrow.

Did you rebuild the carb? If you did, take a look at the fuel hose. It may be cracked or just plain stiff and not sealing well. Also, did you replace the base gasket to the engine for the carb? Need more info

The carb kit comes with diaphragms for the fuel pump.

Thanks for the replies. Replaced all the gaskets in the carb and cleaned it out with a carb and choke cleaner. The fuel line is stiff and could be replaced, ill look into it.

There is a stone filter inside the tank that the fuel line is connected to. To replace the fuel line, drain the gas out of the tank. Cut off the fuel line 1" below from the tank. Push that into the tank and retrieve the filter. Remove the rest of the line from the filter. Soak that filter in carb cleaner and back flush it or just replace the filter. You can get them from strikemaster along with the proper size fuel line.

Feed the new line through the outlet hole in the tank and out the gas fill hole. Put the filter on the end of the hose and pull that through the outlet till it seats the hose and filters nipple.

Thanks for all the help surface tension. My father and I worked on the auger for a night and a little the next day. I replaced the fuel line and filter and we got the auger running. After I was confident I ventured out onto the ice to see if it would cut with the newer strikemaster chipper blade. When i got to the ice i noticed gas was dripping from the choke lever. The auger would run but it was starting much tougher and would not stay idling for me. I believe there is a leak somewhere in the carb and may tear it apart again to make sure it was put back on right. We will see, At least i know she runs \:\)

Look to see if the gas is coming from the tank fitting and running down the hose and to the carb.

If its coming from the carb it would most likely be the inlet valve which isn't shutting off gas. If that needle and seat have been replaced(you need to replace them together as a set)then it could be the fuel level. With the needle and seat in place you'll notice a tang that the fuel pump diaphragm activates. The top of that tang should be level with the floor of the carb body.

Also its possible you have the diaphragms on wrong. If you saved your old ones you'll see the imprint of the carb body and stack.

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
