Tecumseh 2HP auger engine Tune-Up


RossT

Question

Has anyone "tuned-up" their Tecumseh 2HP auger engine before? Did you adjust the carburator, fiddle with the muffler, or what did you do?
I'm looking to "beef" mine up a little. Thanks!

I haven't fiddled too much with mine, but fresh gas and a new spark plug tend to make a big difference in performance.

Something else to watch on the Strikemasters...check the collar bolt on the auger periodically, as they tend to get a little bit loose over time.

My Dad ,though he can't drive anynore said "If it starts then why try to fix it?" And if it needs fixing? "Just remember anyone can take out their appendex but only a Dr. can do it right". Check your local dealer and you will find the best/honest deal. remeber 1 pull? Its good 2 Pulls? plug 3+ call the Doc.

I don't drive fast, I fly low.

don't touch it, those things are so **** finiky, save some time and frustration and bring it to a small engine guy that you think knows what is going on...........not somebody working out of an old barn. itll cost you maybe thirty dollars or so in labor and whatever for parts.

Why stop at a simple tune up. Do what I did and leave a good supply of gas in the tank, let unit sit in your garage during the summer so the heat can break down the gas, gum up your tank and carb. By going this route you not only get a nice tune up from your local small engine guy but can have him throw in a carb kit and maybe even a new fuel line to boot.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
