      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 .

i recently started using a new auger. the problem is it is the cold bloodest thing i ever had. any body had similar problems? do they just adjust them to tight from the factory? i was going to check for restriction in the gas line, then in the carb itself. maybe just a little adjusting on the high speed jet? thanks, jigglestick.

It depends if its hard starting, dies while drilling or both.
I'm sure these carbs are set in warm conditions. When its cold out it takes more gas to start and run. Probably because gas dosent atomize as well in very cold weather.
Hard starting then your low speed needs to come out. Dies while drilling then the High speed comes out.
We can mess around with it this weekend when we both have 2 free hands. grin.gif

If you have a tendency to put too much oil in the gas mixture, that will also cause stalling problems or cold blooded starting as well.

My Jiffy was the same way new too, but the more years I use it the better it runs. My guess is that many of the new augers show signs of the carberator diaphrams being dryed out / hard. I'd guess many of the components are assembled quite some time before being attached to the auger, plus shelf time b4 the auger is actually sold, gives the diaphrams plenty of time to dry out. Plus they were never probably wet before.

I was never able to test my theory on my auger, but a friend recently bought a Jiffy, and it too was hard starting, didn't idle well, etc. We put some Stabil and a small amount of Sea Foam in the gas right away, and it seemed to help. Before, the engine wouldn't respond to changing the idle screws, but soon afterwards, it would. He's on his second year, and it seems to be running good.

Certainly not proof, but something to consider.

Good Luck

i'm using the same mix as my old auger(r.i.p.). it seems to start o.k., but i have to prime the hell out of it. it dies while cutting a hole. i am pretty sure the high speed needs to come out, but not sure about the low speed. i know that if it starts to stall, simply throwing the choke on doesn't do it. i have to hit the primer to keep it running. this weekend would be a great time to mess with it. i will post results for sure. thanks, jigglestick.
