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.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
