      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Recommended Posts

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.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
