Auger running question

3 posts in this topic

I have a Strikmaster Lazer Mag 2 HP 8" that is about 7 years old that needs work. It runs and has good compression when cold but when it gets warm it runs out of power and really won't run well at all. I'm guessing it needs a carb job or could it just adjusting the set screws? any thoughts?

You could start with the screws, but I would bet the carb needs a kit. It is only about $10 and quite simple to do.

New spark plug, check fuel line connections, adjust carb, clean carb and new carb kit.

Good Luck!

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
