Jiffy carburator settings

6 posts in this topic

Which screw is the high sped idle jet screw on a 2 hp tecumsah (sp?) motor. My auger quits under a load, and after warm up will only drill at full choke. It has fresh gas, with seafoam. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for a great forum.

There will be a L and H on the carb body to identify the high and low adjustment screw.
In your case turn the High speed out 1/4 turns till it run right.

I have a similar problem, mine won't stay going unless I keep giving it gas in between drilling holes. Should I be turning the L screw 1/4 turns clockwise until it runs better at low speeds? Will this effect how it runs at higher speeds? I don't want to mess the top end up, because it runs great right now when I'm drilling.

I wish I knew more about small engines.

Threes 3 adjustments. Idle Speed: which is a set screw on the linkage. This adustment simply sets the RPM's at idle.
Low Speed fuel mixture: Its possible to lean this out TO MUCH and then compinsate with the Idle Speed.
High Speed fuel mixture: Set this till you get high RPM's at full throttle under a load. Then turn out 1/4 turn, Why? so you arent running to lean.


Evenflow, We dont know if your getting to much or not enough gas. Turn your low speed in {clockwise) while counting turns till it just stops, dont over tighten the adjustment needle.
Now back it out to where it was. Start the auger and turn out (counterclockwise)
1/4 turns. If you improvement then go back to your starting point and turn in 1/4 turns.

Hey ST,

I finally got around to adjusting my my auger and there are only TWO screws, now I'm really confused... There is one for the idle speed, and one that has L and H on opposite sides. Should there be another screw somewhere? Do I have to open the carb body? Or look somewhere else?

It's all just theory till you hit the water.

The only adjustment inside is fuel level.
What's the carb name and number.
Is your Jiffy a 3 hr.?

    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
