auger repair question

5 posts in this topic

I have a mag2000. I took it apart to put a new rope on it and cleaned the carb while I was at it. I didn't notice how the spring that attached the throttle to the carb was hooked up and can't find any diagrams online. Anybody know off the top of their head?

I know where the spring hooks to the throttle arm, just not sure where on the carb. The carb lever that opens and closes the carb has one small hole in it, but doesn't seem to work there. When hooked up it holds the carb open.

The spring has a circle on one end which attached to the throttle arm and the other end has a little L shaped hook that should attach somewhere else. Hopefullly this makes sense.

Give Strikemaster a call, and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out.

Sounds like it may be the governor spring.Check near the pull rope cover for the governor plate it has a little arm that comes down off of it.I had a the same issue and chose to leave it off for increased rpm and quicker holes.(down side is when will my auger blow to pieces?)

Thanks guys, I do have an email in to Strikemaster as well. Hopefully they will have an answer. I'm pretty sure the spring hooks up with the throttle control, otherwise there is no way to open the carb. If I don't here back from Strikemaster maybe I'll take a picture and post.

I did a search on google for the mag2000 model # TMO49XA, and there are some search results that have the blown parts view to see how it all goes together.

    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved.
