Getting the auger running right

Recommended Posts

I have an old jiffy 3hp and I cannot get it to cut more then two holes before dying. Any tips to get it running correctly?

Does it keep running if you press the primer? If so it is not getting enough gas. There is a air screw on the carb that you can adjust the mixture with. This should get it running better. On a side note you may want to switch to Amsoil Sabre oil and mix it at 80:1. I did that in my jiffy and it has never run better. More power too. I let a freind use some of my gas the other day since he ran out and forgot his and he was amazed at how much better his jiffy ran an drilled. He was instantly converted. I now use it in all of my power tool like the leaf blower, weed whip etc. Great stuff.
