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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
