Cleaning oil off drill exhaust?

Question

Dkoy

How do I get the oil stains off of my ice drill? I have a Jiffy STX 8" and it keeps spitting oil out of the exhaust. Wondering how I could clean it and also how I can stop that?

Ever since I have been using smokless oil, I don't have that problem.

I use Amsoil Saber Professional 100/1 synthetic and it has very little exhaust residue. The walls in my ice house are white and don't show any black spots from drilling.

Additional help to eliminate exhaust fouling: These little hard working 2-cycle engines are meant to be run one way, Flat-Out, Full Throttle. If you run one at idle or low throttle too long, you will get exhaust fouling, even with AMSOIL Saber Professional, or ALL other oils either.

This problem shows up worst in string cutters. If you just stroll along at idle or just pulling the throttle a little, it will give you problems. Warm it up a half throttle until it will take full throttle, then go to work. If you can't work as fast as the machine, you have too big a machine for your job.

You can clean the exhaust with hot water and dish soap and a brush.

Let dry thourghly before reassembly.

Then switch to Amsoil 100:1.

Thanks guys. I didn't know you could clean it off w/ simple soap and water. I'll have to try that. So all you have to do is take it off and clean it off w/ soap and water with a brush? Then fully leave it dry? Didn't think it would be that easy. Thanks though. I'll try and use that aimsoil. Seems like it comes highly recommended.

When running the auger, I do leave it run itself for about 5 minutes. But dang thing, by the time I look at it, its streaking oil all over. I'll try to let it warm up a little longer before running it at full throttle. Thanks for the tips!

I dont think 5min warm up is required I would think 2 would be more than enough at 2 min it seems like forever grin.gif

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
