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'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
