Recommended Posts

OK Im convinced I have the worlds biggest peice of s--t auger!! I after not gettig to talk to anyone at jiffy, called repair shops. Of course they said dont know till you bring it in. But sounds like no gas. Went and got new gas and new plug. No go. Then went to get rebuild kit. Took carb off and apart. Cleaned with carb cleaner. Seems to me that when i put the new needle in it sticks down farther than old one(maybe it was stuck?) reasembled. Put in fresh gas again and Now i have gas Filling up carb to the point that it spills out when I pull rope and gas is also flowing freely out of exhust. More gas comming out than what I put in seems!! So now what?? Thinking its going to go to shop. Or maybe garbage! Cant believe 300 somethig dollar P-O-S Needs work after two years

If you had old gas in it - it was probably gumed up. If you have gas coming out, sounds like to me you might have to adjust the float if you have one. After you get it runnig you might want to run a little dab of C-foam thru it in the gas. Hope that helps...WM

Hey Jethro, When I put new needle in it Stuck out a little farther than old one, and was easy to push down. Which way were you thinking it might be stuck? Up or down? And as for the gas prob, i put new gas in it with seafoam. Now It wont even start. Thans for the input fellas.

LOL, not sure I had the shop fix it blush They had told me that when I had the same issue. I had another problem though that was a quick fix.

I had fuel leaking out of the carb where the diaphram is. The hose running to/from the diaphram was leaking at the fitting. I twisted the fitting about a 1/16th of a turn and it stopped. I think if you were to call D-rock or carpenters in No. St.Paul. They are some decent folks at both places and they are always more than willing to dish out some info. I still had fuel coming out the exhaust but when I switched up to amsoil the problem has stopped. Petroleum based products leave too much unspent fuel behind and may cause little problems down the road

      Well “sadly”. Yes I just said that. Winter is coming to an end and gross summer is near. The hot temps, Humidity, mosquitoes, crazy busy boat landings, drunk boaters. The worst time of the year is near. Life is so blah now. No snowmobiling, no ice fishing, ( I wouldn’t be done for awhile yet but mom won’t let me go anymore😳), I mean really!? I could still drive my truck out What’s more dangerous late ice or being out on first ice on 2”-4”? It’s just water, mud and by far my least favorite time of year. This winter just went by way way to fast! But it is what it is. Can’t believe it, but so long winter 18-19😭🙋‍♂️. In summary probably one of the top ice seasons for me! It’ll make me feel better if I can share some pics with y’all. Enjoy! This is only a VERY few select pics from the winter. Biggest walleye- 21” (caught 3 total all caught while fishing for crappies or gills). Biggest gill- 9-3/4”. Biggest crappie- 13”. Total ice outings 29. (I wanted one more to reach 30). 26 angling outings, 3 dark house spearing outings.

      I am new to catfishing, and live near the stretch of the Mississippi river above the Ford lock and dam to the Marshall Ave. bridge. I have walked along the shore, and found some spots I think would hold some catfish. My only concern is how shallow the river is here. I will be trying these spots within the next two weeks. I am curious if anyone has had success in this section, or will I be wasting my time?

      I just wrote to those five people. I am amazed at how I live in the South Haven area and yet every time I learn about these meetings after they happen. And they don’t understand why we feel they want us to stay off “their lake”.  Need to be more open and up front publicly about these meetings. As I have stated before in another forum, I have not fished Sylvia since this was implemented. Also I have not bought bait or boat gas in South Haven the last 2 years. I will spend my money where it is welcomed. I have been cleaning my boat at landings for years, plus power washing it when I get home. I am sure many good anglers/boaters do as well and for them to make us go through this inspection, which is out of the way and not even open 24 hours is rediculous. I am all for stopping the spread of AIS, but there needs to be better ways of doing a it than keeping the lake from all users.  We need everyone to get involved in this even if you don’t live near these lakes.  AIS is affecting us all but we need everyone to speak up about how it will be dealt with, or more lakes will be “closed” to the public with this inspection program.

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.

      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.
