Auger....need more power

Question

toonfish

My auger is about 10 years old and still starts fine.....but it never seems to get to a full rev. It also quits with too much resistance cutting holes. It is frustrating to re-start 2 times to cut one hole.....any quick, ideas on what some of the problems may be??

Governor spring is weak. There is a sring that links the throttle to the carb. Find that spring. One end will have a long straight hook and the other will have a hook right next to the spring coils. That is where it should connect to your throttle. On the throttle end, cut off 3 turns including the hook. Bend a new hook using the next turn and reconnect it to your throttle. That should get you back in the game or close to it.

My neighbor is a mechanic, and he always says for old small engines, to give a quick little squirt of oil (any oil) into the cyclinder. It helps build a bit of compression, and I haveit work wonders. It doesn't "fix" anything, but helps for old weak cyclinders. Give it a try with 2 stroke oil, it certainly won't hurt it. Good luck.

That sounds just like my auger, i took it in at the begining of this season and they replaced the spring and it runs like new again, But i payed 50 in labor to replce a 2 dollar spring, that im sure i could have replaced myself.:(

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
