      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Problem with new Jiffy auger

Recommended Posts

Guest

I just received my new Jiffy 70 series auger and I'm concerned about the way it idles. As the auger idles, the clutch sporadically engages and the auger blades abruptly turn about an eighth or quarter turn every couple of seconds or so. I plan on contacting an authorized Tecumseh service outlet like the operating manual says (any suggestions for a good one in the south metro?) but I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this problem.

wiseguy I don't have a Jiffy but what it sounds like to me is that the idle was preset at the factory a little to aggressive. You can adjust this yourself with a screw driver really easy...

Wiseguy,

I had the EXACT same problem you did.. You can contact your tecumse dealer.. THey may tell you to run it a bit.. Some times it takes them a while to set all in.. Mine never got any better.. I just ajusted the screw till it ran better.. I adjusted it while I was cutting.. took two guys... Now it runs like a champ!

If your is still under warrenty, I would have them do it!

This is an easy fix. As everyone has stated the idle is set to high. Adjust it with a screw drive and you are in business.

Most likely due to it being new the clutch is a bit tight yet. The idle, if set a bit high, will make it engage a bit too quickly on the warm up.

You can tweek the idle down a tad or just burn a few 100 holes and it will likely smooth out.

To me it sounds like you got a good tight auger there, I like seeing them do that new myself.

Keep good High Octain Ethinol Free gas and a quality oil mix with a shot of STA-BILL in the tank and it will treat you well.

Gitty-UP GO JIFFY...RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

I always thought that was normal based on the Jiffys I have seen.

And yeah, why DIDN'T you buy a Lazer anyways?

Dano2 & Pro Crappie Guide, The Jiffy I bought is a 9" model 77 Legend Lightning with stealth cutting technolog and D-ice'r armor. I bought it at the same time I bought an FL-18. It normally goes for $325. I paid $299. perhaps because I also bought the vex. I really hadn't planned on buying a power auger at all yet but the price was right, so I did. I've read a lot of threads on this forum about power augers and found the opinions on Jiffy versus StrikeMaster mixed. It appears to me that both Jiffy and StrikeMaster make good products. I would have been happy with a StrikeMaster Lazer. I hope I'll be happy with the Jiffy!

It sounds like you made your decision by reading the forums and figured what is best for you and how much you wanted to spend. smile.gif I didn’t purchase an auger yesterday frown.gif when I was in Fargo being I really don’t know which one to purchase not to mention letting the moths shocked.gif out of my billfold. But the auger you purchased is the same one I was leaning toward also. $329.00 I believe was the price at Mills Fleet. Didn’t stop at Scheel’s because of a time schedule. Good luck fishing and I’m sure you’ll be happy with both items you purchased! wink.gif Where did you get your bargain?

Fish Toys, I bought it from Reeds at the Ice Fishing Show. It wasn't in stock so I just received it this week. I don't know that they would sell it at that price again because they told me this week that the sales rep had made a mistake in cutting the price. Anyway, I won't buy anything more from Reeds as long as I live because of the rude way that they treated me when I called them.

    • Hey guys, it's me PGF. Been a long time since I've posted and couldn't get logged on as old PGF so I'm busted down to newbie. Anyhoo, I saved this spear from the scrap yard and was wondering if you guys had any idea where it might have been made? It has MK or MN i think stamped near the business end. It's hard to tell for sure what letters they are. Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks
    • Maybe Fisherman's Corner in Duluth?
    • I believe superior shooter supply carries what you need, try giving them a call, but on a search myself they do not seem to carry black powder but they may be able to point you in the right direction ?
    • Been there done that . I have 2 CGI s and 1 Wright Mcgill Tony Roach ( Eagle Claw) . When I set them up outside the wind would spool the line off and of course get snagged in the nut holding the spool in place. I made a brass rod about 3 in with a loop on the end and fastened to the reel. I run the line through the loop. It helps quite a bit. The drag is another matter.
    • third season coming up for my #8's.  Once in a great while I might wrap on the button but very rare. My pointer finger keeps the line in place. Free spool??  I aint got time for that, LOL. 
    • Taking tomorrow off...  We will see what happens as this front pushes in.  Hopefully it gets something on its feet.
    • Just wondering what people use for portable chairs. Bucket, fold up, tripod, etc. Been looking at some nice fold up chairs with a padded swivel seat. But they are 11 pounds each. I want to stay as light as possible. I also have a tripod chair but don't really like a post riding up my crotch. 
    • I like my Eagle Claw. My only gripe is that because there is no hole for the line to go through it will come over the OD of the main spool and get wrapped around the release button. Then I end up having to loosen the button until it comes off. The line will then be free and then have to put the button back on and re-tighten it. I like the composit material because it is not cold to the touch when using bare hands. I also use my finger as a drag to control the free spooling. Sometimes it will spin too fast let out too much line.
    • that's part of the reason I didn't jump on this one cause I thought you yanking a chain or two...
    • There's a few good videos on the tube for ideas.
