Auger questions - part 2

5 posts in this topic

OK, so we're pretty confident my auger is 3HP Jiffy model 30. I was running it today (wishing I could cut some holes) and the auger started turning (pretty rapidly) when it was in idle without me giving it any throttle? Is the idle set too high or is there another issue?

I'm new to these things, so any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Its either your idel or your clutch spring is broken. Mine broke last winter. And the auger is only 2 years old. The problem is with the spring is you will need the whole set up. You cant just buy the spring and replace that. In saying that, its not a spending thing. It just [PoorWordUsage] a guy off that you have to replace something on a two year old machine.

I hear ya there - been searching the web and guys on other forums suggest taking one of the good ones to a small engine shop and see if they can match it.

If it sounds like it is idling to fast you can follow the linkage and adjust to a lower idle but you might want to wait till you are on the ice because when the motor is cold you might find that the idle is close to where you want it and by adjusting it now you will have a auger that won't idle at all when cold.

Yep, been there, done that... Adjust it at the temp you will be using it. Or you will be swearing a lot like I was wink

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
