Jiffy Recoil problems!

5 posts in this topic

Have been having a lot of problems with the recoil on my jiffy auger. I get it all put together and after a couple pulls the cord cord works its way out farther and farther until i have to take it apart again to get it to work. Is the spring going out? I replaced the starter handle and rope and this didnt have any effect on the problem. anyone have any suggestions?

When you are putting the cord on are you winding the spring up so it pulls it back in when you release it?You need about 3-4 turns on the spring before you attach the rope.Either that or your spring is slipping.

yes, the cord works fine for a couple pulls, then starts to slip out, gonna check with some small engine places tomorrow to see what it is gonna cost me to fix.

Theres a little notch in the rewind spool. Put the rope in that notch. Preload the spring by turning the spool with rope in the notch.. Might take a few times to get the preload just right. If your doing that correctly, then one end of the springs loops or spring retainer pins isn't holding that preload.

If your not comfortable with taking apart the recoil then bring it in to any small engine shop.

Just had this happen to me, the end of the spring is comming out of the cord disc. And unwinding the spring with pull. You can bend the inside loop so it touches the center post, but D-Rock said replace the spring $9.20 and he put it in and showed me how to wind it.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
