Lazer XL3000 won't reach power rpm.....?

Question

ndoutdrs

I have not been able to get my Strikemaster XL3000 Lazer to "kick in" the power band rpm. You know when you are drilling and you can hear the engine switch rpm's like shifting...."kicking in" at the power band? Mine does not do that. Any ideas on carb adjustments or what else?? Otherwise this machine runs flawlessly!!

Surface Tension

Could be a few things.

That shift in that power band is the governor giving the auger more throttle as the load increases. It could be that there is some obstruction(spider web) where the vane and the fins on the flywheel react with each other. Sometimes I'll see the vane even wore from from rubbing.

Its also common to get some show dust and ice in the linkage and the governor won't work correctly.

Oils can accumulate on the throttle and governor linkage. When its cold they become thick. Spray the linkage down with a spray can carb cleaner. Get it on all the linkage and up into the air shroud where that vane is too. Work the throttle back and forth to help flush out and get that cleaner into fulcrums.

Some of that linkage is wire and can get bent out of shape. Be careful during transport.

If the above doesn't solve the problem ,make sure the tank is vented, that you have a good spark plug, and fresh mixed gas.

Next thing to look into is a carb adjustment. Then onto a carb cleaning and new diaphragms.

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
