Ice auger end of season

3 posts in this topic

How do I take care of my 2hp ice auger engine now so it is ready to go when the ice comes back in november?

I dumped most of the gas out, run the rest out that's in there. Put a dab of oil on the machined lazer blades and put it in the basement. I have used mine for 6 seasons and it's been awesome thus far. I have to spray my throttle cable every pre-season with WD-40 too so that cable slides easy through the sheathing and I have no problems with the throttle sticking.

I get my 20 year old Jiffy running and put some Mistery Oil or automatic transmission fluid in the air intake on the carb untill it stalls or you get a lot of smoke coming out. That coats the whole inside of the engine with the oil and keeps any moisture from rusting it. Drain all of the gas out of the tank as well. My Jiffy has a grease fitting on the gear case that I pump about 4 shots of grease in. That's what I've done and my Jiffy is still runing strong after 20 years of use.
Good Luck

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
