JIFFY 3HP STEALTH

14 posts in this topic

CONFUSED....GOT NEW JIFFY STEALTH 3HP 8" LAST YEAR AND USED IT ABOUT 4 DAYS....PROBLEM IS NO TORQUE, IT SOUNDS GOOD AND BLADE SPINS SMOOTHLY, BUT AS SOON AS I START CUTTING THRU ICE IT SEEMS TO BOG DOWN, AND STICK. SEEMS TO HAVE NO POWER TO CUT THRU ICE. BLADES ARE GOOD AND SHARP. I ALSO HAVE AN ESKIMO 2 HP 10" AND I CAN CUT HOLES IN HALF THE TIME OF THAT 3HP. ANY IDEAS OR SUGGESTIONS

I have an older 2hp Jiffy and mine does the same thing if I don't let it warm up. If you start drilling holes right away, it will bog down on you.

Either..it..is..cold..or..the..neidle..and..seat..is..sticky..or..partially..plugged..up.

If..warming..it..up..first..does..not..help..then..try..tweeking..the..idle..mix..screw..open..a..1/8..turn.

Do..this..adjustment..when..it..is..warm..also.

Be..sure..the..choke..if..fully..off..too.

What you discribe is a classic carb problem. Did you leave fuel in it at the end of last season. If so you have gum in the carb other wise try what eddy mentioned. Another sometimes easy fix is to run some sea foam through it. That isn't a bad thing to just do periodically anyhow.

ever since I got it last year from the very first day on,,,,it really never did work that well, it idled great but no torque, I don't think there is a break-in period, but as for now it sits in my garage and I use my eskimo

A few things it could be.
High speed on the carb needs adjustment.
Dirty carb or the govenor isnt working.

I.agree..it's.classic.carb.problems.
Dump.all.the.old.suspect.fuel.out.

Mix.new.oil/fuel.with.a.good.dose.of.Sea-Foam.includes..about.1oz.per.tank.

You.can.lean,the.oil.a.bit.with.a.Sea-Foam.mix.too..smokes.less.

A..soak.&.flush.first.with.straight.Sea.Foam.would.be.wise.

If.it.is.warmed.up.&.Choke.off..and.if.it.STILL.does.not.go.WAAAAAAAAAAA..while.under.load.
something.is.plugged.up.or.set.too.lean.

The.Jiffy.Stealth.system.bites.ice.hard..if.your.too.lean.it.will.dog.down.fast.

Another.thing.is.it.should.almost.go.down.under.it's.own.weight.(Especially.new.charp.blades).try.not.to.force.it...just.guide.it.down.

FYI, I just purchased a 3hp 10" stealth a week or so ago, I was very impressed when I put gas in and in 2 pulls its running and with a bit of warming it had no problems, after hearing about the emission settings stc,.. they musta fixed that prob..?

I bought one last year too with the same problems. It's like it doesn't get enough gas. My brother-in-law also has one the same way. I drill with mine on half choke and it works fine. I think I neeed to adjust the carb to put more fuel into the mix but haven't done it yet.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
