Tecumseh 2HP auger engine Tune-Up

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone "tuned-up" their Tecumseh 2HP auger engine before? Did you adjust the carburator, fiddle with the muffler, or what did you do?
I'm looking to "beef" mine up a little. Thanks!

I haven't fiddled too much with mine, but fresh gas and a new spark plug tend to make a big difference in performance.

Something else to watch on the Strikemasters...check the collar bolt on the auger periodically, as they tend to get a little bit loose over time.

My Dad ,though he can't drive anynore said "If it starts then why try to fix it?" And if it needs fixing? "Just remember anyone can take out their appendex but only a Dr. can do it right". Check your local dealer and you will find the best/honest deal. remeber 1 pull? Its good 2 Pulls? plug 3+ call the Doc.

don't touch it, those things are so **** finiky, save some time and frustration and bring it to a small engine guy that you think knows what is going on...........not somebody working out of an old barn. itll cost you maybe thirty dollars or so in labor and whatever for parts.

Why stop at a simple tune up. Do what I did and leave a good supply of gas in the tank, let unit sit in your garage during the summer so the heat can break down the gas, gum up your tank and carb. By going this route you not only get a nice tune up from your local small engine guy but can have him throw in a carb kit and maybe even a new fuel line to boot.
