parts for eskimo augers

10 posts in this topic

Bought a brand new auger and got a deal on it since they were missing the gas cap. Anyone know of a place to purchase one that will fit?

Checked their site already and the cap is $13 plus shipping. Seems dumb to pay almost $20 for a gas cap.

If it's a techumsa engine then you need that gas cap. A lot of stores have them.

I just bought one at fleet farm for $10.

the origional on my eskimo was a piece. They had a really cheap brass insert pressed into the plastic cap. I think i just went to FF and picked up one for an strike master, or a juffy and worked just fine. as long as the threads are the same, it don't matter, they all have breathers on them.

The breather allows air to flow into the gas tank when the engine is running. When the carb is pumping gas it will create a vacuum in the gas tank to the point where it cannot pull gas through the line anymore. This will cause the engine to loose power and stall out. Be sure to open it when starting your engine and close it when you are done, or gas can and will come out of the breather when the auger is layed down.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
