Keeping Jiffy running?


Minnetonka

Question

I have a four year old Jiffy Legend 3 HP. It usally starts OK after a couple of pulls but I need to keep it on full choke to drill the first hole and then if I switch to half choke it might die. If the motor doesnt die and start to drill the second hold, it sounds good until it revs up and then just dies. I suspect that it is not getting enough gas and I have been slowly tweaking the set screw. I have been turning the one on the left that is a redish color. Am I going about this right? Any tips on how to correct this problem?

PS: It usally will start again if I put it back on full choke and prime it again.

Yes it sounds like your starving for gas.
I don't think it's a venting problem.
Check the fuel line for cracks or loose connections.
You should have 3 adjustments. idle speed, Low speed and High speed. Turning the L H out or counter clock wise is what you want.
I'm not familiar with the caps on that auger but the malefactor will put them on to prevent you from adjusting the carb. Some you have to remove and some you have to push in and turn. You may have a dirty carb so any adjustments you make won't help at all. Theres been quite a bit posted on that topic already. Good Luck.

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.

      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
