strikemaster ice auger?

Question

arcticcat400

i have a 3 year old strikemaster lazer mag express and it ran good at the end of the year last year now this year it would not run at all so i sprayed some ether in the cylinder and got it running and it would only start if i did this but when it started it ran good i changed the spark plug and now it starts good but when i throttle it up it bogs down and make kind of a snap and sometimes blows a puff of smoke out of the air filter and ideas what could be wrong with it?

Only thing I can think of is a carb kit and a compete drain of gas. Hope it helps.

Use fresh fuel and pour about an oz of seafoam in the tank and run it for awhile to get in the carb and let it set overnite then run again the next day it should clear up if not then it's carb cleaning/rebuild time.

Fuel air mixture is too lean. I don't remember if that one has a idle mixture screw or not. If it does, it would be under the carb angled toward your right side if the carb is facing you. If it does have that screw, turn it counter-clockwise (out) 1/4 of a turn. That should do it. If it does not have a screw, it will need the carb cleaned and a new kit. It may have a piece of gunk stuck in one of the fuel passages. Try to stay away from the ether thing. It washes out all the oil in the engine and dries it out very fast and can do some costly damage. A squirt bottle with some mixed gas in it is the best way to accomplish your goal.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
