Jiffy Auger Settings

4 posts in this topic

A question for those who are more mechanically inclined than myself.

Problem: I have a 2 hp Jiffy auger, and when the auger comes under load while drilling, I have to let off to 1/2 throttle or it quites. Do I adjust the high speed mixture richer or leaner? Do I have to mess with the idle (it seems to idle fine)? Not a huge problem, as I know what the personal temperment of my auger is, but when someone else uses it they struggle. I would just like to get the best out of it.

Thanks for helping the mechanically challenged? What a great site.

I have a similar issue with my Jiffy 2 HP, but only usually just at first when it starts up. If I let it warm up for a couple minutes, it runs smooth.

I would adjust the high speed screw. Turn it out a half turn and see how it acts, if its worse turn it back in a turn which would be a half turn in from where you started.

Start with fuel line connections and filter.

Then go one to carb adjustment. This depends on what carb you have. Different models and years mean different carbs.

Richen(turn out) the high speed mixture screw.

If you can't get it to run under load then a carb cleaning and kit plus inspection of the governor linkage, spring and vane.

      Thanks Kunzi, that's is exactly the type of feedback I am looking for.  I didn't now Batteries + carried them now.  I was in there a year or two ago and they said they had stopped carrying them due to quality issues.  They must have worked those out.  Please post what brand/model you bought and how your test goes.    Thanks!

      Love my munchkin. I have mine set up as a spear shack.    One thing i do I do wish is that it pulled better with my snowmobile. Works great behind the wheeler but if I need to use the snowmobile I have major issues. Need to have studs added to make it work in the future.
