Jiffy modle 30 3hp problems....

Question

KG243

My dad bought a new one this year and he took it out of the box and thought it wasnt running right so he messed with the high and low idle screws. It is way messed up now. Does anyone know how many turns ruffly they need to be turned out for it to be running good. I messed with it and got it to start and stay running but it never stops spining and I dont think it is giving us all the power it has. Thanks for any help you can offer!!

Take it into a shop and have them tune it under load on a dyno. That is the only real way to get it set properly now, with and certainty of results.

If there is a "Garden Shop" service center near you, I recommend them.

I believe its 2-3 turns roughly. They should have them red stop things on the needle to keep you from turning them in or out too far. If the auger turns at idle youll need to turn the screw out alittle till it bogs down alittle and doesnt turn the auger at idle. Then to get the high needel adjusted run it at full throttle for alittle while and if it kills turn it out alittle till it stays running. When its under load you may need to adjust it again alittle but this should get you in the ballpark.

It is 1 and 1/4 turns from contact with the needle to the seat as a starting point.

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
    • ANYFISH2
      Not exact on the Max depth.  Can on occasions, winterkill, although not often.   I have fished it numerous times as I know a couple home owners there.   There are are crappie, bluegill, bass, pike, and the lake owners stock some walleyes as well(they have permits to do so).

    • kemp13
      Anyone know anything about lake Camile near cushing, mn? Looks like a real small private lake. I'm just looking to find out max depth and if it holds any fish. Any info is appreciated!
