Ice auger leaks gas

3 posts in this topic

I have a ice auger that leaks gas. The gas leaks out of the bottom of the carb and leaks out of exhaust. It does run but is very hard starting. I suspect that the problem is with the float in the carb. Is this an easy fix or should I have the professional look at it?

I bought mine as a reconditioned unit and also had a leak problem. Since I had just bought it, I took the auger in to Big Lake and they fixed it right there in about 15 minutes. Apparently there was a part that got bent open when the carburator was assembled that didn't stop the flow of gas into the carb. Now it works great.

It's the diaphram not to bad to fix on your own.

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
