auger shutoff

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how the shut off switches work on the augers? I have an old old eskimo (about 40yrs old) with a tecumseh power head. The shut off that used to be on it was a metal grounding strap that you would touch on the top of the spark plug to gound it out. I want to convert it to a switch. Anyone know were to connect the switch to??

Newer style motors that use a shutoff switch normally use the switch to ground the coil. If you look at the coil there should be a small wire on it (not the coil wire) that goes to the points. If you tap into that, then run the wire to the switch, then from the switch to ground it should work.

I took the power head apart, and found a tab that I can splip a female adater over, and works great. Thanks for the help. Since I had it apart, I decided to repaint the old thing. Looks like new now.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
