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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
