Dozer

Jiffy wont run.

Question

Dozer

My Father has a 3 horse Jiffy that he bought new about 20 years ago. It has never run right had carb rebuild once replace entire ignition and recently replaced whole carb. We are pretty mechanicly inclined people but still isnt right. He took it in a couple times and still isnt right. He had enought a couple weeks ago and bought a strikemaster. On monday my strikemaster blew up so I borrowed his Jiffy till I get a new one. I used it last night and it need some serious attention! It starts great 1st or second pull but thats about all it does good! If you let it warm up it will want to die once in a while just at random like you shut the switch off. After its warmed up it acts like it is only getting half throttle. Just wont rev up. You can push right on the leaver on the carb and doesnt change. I just got it tues so I havent really worked on it yet. I dont think it is as simple as just adjusting the carb but I didnt have time to play with that last night.

the slightest movement with tunning the carb could do it. On our jiffy you could get it running but then when you started to drill hole it would die. After tinking with it for a while i finaly got it just right and now it will just rip threw the ice. I believe its faster then any stock strikemaster, atleast that is what i am told.

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
