Jiffy Auger Settings

Question

folke2000

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.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.
