Jiffy model 30 recoil broke


KrashR

Question

Has anyone ever had their recoil break on a model 30 Jiffy? The cord broke in mine and I started to fix it, wound it all up, but couldn’t get the cord through, so I let out the tension a few turns by hand and then let it go….. Now it doesn’t catch anymore, so I took it apart and it started to catch, but then when I got it all the way back together it didn’t again. Went to a local small engine place and they said the spring is broke and you can’t rebuild them and so I bought a new recoil for $44. I wouldn’t think Jiffy would make one you can disassemble if it wasn’t rebuildable. If a new spring only costs $5-10 I’d rather go that route. Looks like the one I bought can’t be taken apart. Anyone have any insight??

The tag end probley broke off one or the other ends of the spring, the recoil comes apart, look for a C clip on the small shaft that comes out the center of the recoil, remove this, you should be able to disassemble the recoil, take out the broken tag end, heat the end of the spring and bend a new end and reassemble the recoil. wink.gif Maybe the spring onhooked itself when the rope broke and the recoil reround.

What efgh spells out is correct.. you should be able to bend the end of the spring and re-coil everything... just be extremely carefull when you're doing this... the spring has a way of shooting out at you when you're putting everything back together...

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
