Jiffy model 30 Auger

4 posts in this topic

I'm sure this has been gone over before, if it has can somebody show me where, I can't seem to find it. I took out the auger this fall and replaced the gas, replaced the plug and took off the carb and sprayed cleaner into it. It started good. Now that I need to use it, it won't start!!! I'm guessing it is the carb, because there is plenty of spark. I pump it 5 - 10 times and pull and pull. It just won't fire. How exactly do you clean the jets in carb? I'm very stupid when it comes to engines and carbs. Thanks for the info in advance.

Dump all the old fuel out first.

Pour some straight SEA FOAM in the tank and let it sit overnight after you prime it up good. Don't try to start it, just let it sit.

Dump the remaining gunk out of the tank and flush. Remove the jet needle from the seat.(NOTE how many turns it took to remove the screws.)

With a low pressure air hose blow the carb out after removing the jet screws. Pour some more SEA FOAM in the tank and prime it again so the gunk runs out of the jets. Blow it out again and replace the needle into the seat. The general rule of thumb is 1 1/2 turns from the seat will get the auger to fire.

DO NOT bottom out the needle to the seat this will damage the needle and the seat.

Add some fresh mix with a dose of SEA FOAM added, prime it up with the choke on, and give it a go.

Make sure the plug is good and gapped properly and you should be popping that Jiffy off with one pull.
