Play in the auger arm

7 posts in this topic

I just got a used Jiffy 3hp and it works great. The motor starts on one pull but I noticed that there is a little play where the auger arm conects to that plate that turns the auger. Is it normal for it to have some play?? I used my allen key to tighten the bolt which connects the units togther.
Thanks for the help

its normal to have a little. But its difficult to say when its too much with no way of measurement.

It seems to drill holes fine and work all right. I was not sure if there should be any play there but I guess there should be.

I have a new 3Hp Jiffy with the 10" blade as well. Mine also has the play you are referring to -- I think this is normal. Mine cuts great but the idle is a bit rough...may have to play with the carb settings in the future.

You could cut open a aluminum beverage can and wrap the shaft, trim aluminum until it fits snug and retighten the bolt. Very easy bushing

If you put anything like aluminum to steel coat the surfaces with some kind of anti-sieze compound or it with really make a permanent bond to each other. I don't think you want that.

I also have the 3 hp jiffy with a 10 inch auger, it also had the play thats being talked about here, but now its gotten pretty bad. there has to be something wrong with the weight of the 10 incher that causes this.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!

    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
