old ice auger trouble shooting


RICKD

Question

I am an ice fishing novice!!
I recently came across an older eskimo ice auger....age/power unkown. I can get the motor to run but when I start drilling into the ice the auger quits turning. after running a few seconds in engage the auger again and it runs just a few seconds and then stops rotating...is there a clutch ajustment or what?

Sounds like either a bad clutch or a shear pin in busted from one of the gears.

When your auger stops it'll most be from one of two things. Lack of power which would be a dirty carb or a carb that needs adjustment or a bad clutch. If its your clutch you'll hear it ratchet if its power it'll bog.

I'll go with the bad clutch, I own a old Eskimo and mine had similar problems . You could just take the lower clutch assembly apart . It's easily done and you just need to put new gear oil in after. My auger was broke where the centrifugal clutch met the gears (drilling in dirt ..Bad for them) .I now have a Strikemaster and everthing is ok.Metro

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
