.035 is the plug gap. The old mag III was made by Osceola Power Equipment which eventually became part of Strikemaster. Great auger.

I'd have to look. I can't remember off the top of my head. There is an NGK plug that works awesome in these engines and will last twice as long as the champion counterpart. I'll have to get back to you with the part number.

How do you know when it is time to replace the spark plug in a power auger?

Anyone know where to find a parts list for this auger, specifically how the carb throttle assembly goes back together?

Call Strikemaster and ask to speak to a service technician. They are wonderful!

this is a strikemaster auger. it should have a tecumseh engine. email me at shadluckace at yahoo dot com. I have a pdf file of the service manual for this engine. they only used the 2 hp tecumsehs on their auger back then until they came out with the three horse. the other option would be to do a web search for tecumseh engines. there should be a code on the side of the block. this will tell you when the engine (thus the auger) was manufactured. it should start with the letters TC (atleast the manual shows this).

Bassassin email at the above email address

also forgot for a copy of the owners manual go to the strikemaster HSOforum and click on customer support or service. once there click on the section for owners manual. then click on the one for the mag 2000. the mag 2000 and mag III are the same auger they just changed the name of them. I have a mag III plus from 1991 and it still runs great.

I was searching online and found this thread, I found out some new stuff about the auger, thanks. My grandpa has 2 of these he bought new 22 years ago. They still run great. One had the carb rebuilt but that was because of lack of maintenance.

Where can I buy a replacement blade for this auger, it has the old chipper blade on it, and it still has the original edge, it is just now starting to cut slow.

Most chipper blades can be sharpened easily on a wet stone.

Be sure to you touch up the center point too. Often forgotten, the center point is critical to feed the main blade properly.

A file will do it on the center point. Try to keep the angle true, keep the file flat to the surface of the center point.

I use a black marker to black out the face of the main blade cutting surface...then lay the top edge face down on the wet stone..keeping the angle flat and with a circular motion hone the edge true.

Once all the black from the marker is gone, it's good to do.

I'm still using one of these old guys also. Can't see spending money on a new one while this one runs and cuts just fine, although not as fast.

Blades can be found at any outlet that sells Strikemaster items. I had one in my hand at FF the other day. It's the same blade that is used on the Mag2000's.

Good point Ed. A guy would really need to be trying in order to destroy a chipper blade. I usually just touch mine up every fall. The black marker trick works well.

My Grandpa had his buddy sharpen one of the augers, he sharpened the blade on both sides, and the angle is way off. It bounces now when cutting, so I was going to have the blade sharpened elsewhere and if this doesn't work then I would have to buy a new blade.He also sharpened the center point, I dont see how he could possibly screw that up also but I will closely compare it to the other auger. Thanks guys

    • 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.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels.
