      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 .

Info on Eskimo Auger

Recommended Posts

Guest

I am looking for information on starting problems with my Eskimo gas auger. It will not pull the gas thru the line. I started it with WD40 thinking it would then pull the gas thru. No such luck. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

My dad had the same problem with his Eskimo the carbs tend to gum up if you dont empty the gas each year and run them dry. You need to take the carb off and clean it up or take it in and have it worked on. Any good small engine guy should have it back to you within days.
I have never had this problem with my Jiffy thats the beauty of having a primer.

good luck

I just went thru the same thing with my brothers old eskimo. Clean the tank, replace hose if needed, replace diaphram, needle and seat (be sure to check new seat to make sure rubber seal is in it before you put one in, mine had one in and a extra in bag)replace the rubber O-rings for the idle and air/fuel mixture jets. Remove all parts from carburetor and clean/soak with a good carburetor spray. Use a air to clean out after carb cleaner. It cost about $15.00 and did it myself.

see if you have a vapor lock, don't use starting fluid or wd-40 for anything fuel related. These products are too refined and may score your piston. Use premium gasoline in place of either of the two. The octane levels of 91 or better are the best for the engine. Make sure you change out/use your gas within a month to two. The octane levels drop off that quickly. You may have the carb gummed up and in need a carb kit(not very expensive). I just got my dad's strikemaster going after 11 years of dust collecting. I drained the old gas and used the same method along with a new plug.
hope this gives you another alternative

I had this problem with my old Eskimo auger and I just pulled the gas line off the carb and let the fuel flow out and then put it back on. I also run Seafoam in my gas all the time to help clean and stabilize everything. I have had to pull the line off the past few years and do this, but have never had a problem with it starting all winter.

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
