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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
