Ice Auger break in

10 posts in this topic

Got a new Jiffy stx stealth and was wondering about engine break in. I did buy some synthetic oil for it but I've been told that synthetic is not a good break in oil because it lubes so well that the rings won't seat. Just wondering what others here have done for break in oil.

I am sure there are many different opinions on this, but I used the factory reccomended oil for my Strikemaster for the first winter. Then I switched to the synthetic and have been real happy with it.

Good Luck!

I have a LazerMag and I'm not sure if the same results should reflect with a Jiffy. But when I first purchased mine I read on here that most guys will run through a gallon of standard mix. Then switching to a synthetic of your choice.

cough...Amsoil Saber....cough.....

Ive got the same auger. I went through one gallon of regular oil/gas then switched to amsoil. It runs so much better with amsoil!

I broke mine in with the Amsoil Saber at 50:1 for a couple of tanks and then switched to 80:1.

I broke my last 2 Nils in with a 75-1 mix of Amsoil Sabor and after the 1st gallon went to 100-1. My Nils runs way better at 100-1 than the 75-1 I started out with.

I highly recomend the Amsoil Sabor in the pillow pacs. Just toss 1 pac in a gallon of gas and you have the 100-1 ratio. Dumby proof enough for me to use it. grin

    •     The roadblock in this case is Ryan.  They should ask him to step down.
    •   Oh look that big money in politics Del likes to defend.
    •   It's more a problem of special interests and political ideals setting up roadblocks. If they did the their jobs and do what is in the best interest of the voters it would be an easy fix but you can't do that when big donors and insurance companies have to have their way.
    • Well my season is done, was an extremely short year, with not alot of fishing opportunities, but still enjoyed some good outings with good friends!    
    • Was just speaking of health in general, you brought up the cancer.   Speaking of: http://www.nbcnews.com/health/cancer/amp/it-s-not-your-fault-researchers-confirm-cancer-often-random-n737776   Well, ill just eat like a slob cause it can happen to anybody. They want you to think that, drive that machine johns Hopkins!
    • Good. If we had a third opposition group when they were pushing Obamacare maybe that wouldn't have passed either. 
    • AKA the Tea-Party
    •   One brave soul comments but nobody really knows.   10% is YUUUGE!  Most are struggling to stay in the black at all.  Yes, equipment and market share are a must - the customer demands it.  Stay current and convenient or die trying.   Aside from pharmaceuticals, the biggest problem is keeping up with the regulatory requirements.  EMTALA requires hospitals to see everyone, regardless of ability to pay.  The reimbursements are controlled by CMS (Medicare/Medicade) so if a hospital wants to be reimbursed it must maintain Deemed Status.  The most common way to acquire Deemed Status is through surveys by a private company called The Joint Commission.   The Standards are set by CMS, surveyed by TJC (which hospitals pay a fee for) and cited for any deficiencies.  EVERYTHING is surveyed from the physical building, to policies/procedures, credentials, life safety codes and so on.  If you're deficient anywhere, you have to correct it or lose your Deemed Staus - and your reimbursements, which aren't even enough to cover the actual costs of caring for those who can't pay their own expenses.   And yes, expenses are high.  Because: Staff need to be skilled and licensed, certain infrastructure components have to exist where they don't in other businesses and most all the equipment used has to be certified and tested regularly, and purchased from certified manufacturers.   And every step has to be documented.  If you didn't document it, you didn't do it.   Literally, there's your snapshot of why medical is so expensive.  And yes, it's all in the name of patient safety - which won't be compromised.   Now, I'm going fishing.  See ya. 
    • NO.  But the freedom caucus gives us an object lesson on what thrings would be like with three parties, since they appear to be a defacto third party albeit embedded within the Republicans.
