      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Jiffy auger carb parts

Recommended Posts

Looking for a source for a carb kit for an older Jiffy auger. It has the Tillotson HU carb, and doesn't start or stay running very well. Figured I'd throw a new plug and carb kit in it and see what happens...but I can't seem to fins a place that has a carb kit! Any info is appreciated!

I am a do-it-myself guy all the way, however, sometimes i give in and let an expert do the work. I was a little leary as to the cost, but was very reasonable, and everything was looked over and replaced if questionable. Just a couple pulls and it starts and runs perfect. I have watched many a guys tug on augers until their arms fell off. Its not worth the chance to me, i would rather be fishin than pullin on the jiffy.

Went to D Rock on Saturday. I hit the Jiffy home page and found the link for service centers. Thanks to everyone that replied!

(by the way, the auger starts like a dream...but won't stay running. I'll futz with the jet screws tonight)

Pharcta2,

Let me know what you find out with solving your auger running problem. I am javing the same problem with mine. It will startfine but does not idle well. Runs OK at high speed but only idles at 1/2 choke.

LundExplorer - I started futzing with the main and idle screws. The good news: Starts and runs like a dream
The bad news: Oil/Gas mix running out of the muffler accompanied by a real funny popping noise. Looks like I scored the cylinder wall or lost a ring. I got 8 or so years out of her, so I guess I can't dam too loudly!

I wouldnt be to sure. Theres and idle speed, low speed adjustment and a high a speed adjustment. Gas runnin out the muffler means your high speed is adjustment is to rich.
Is the pop coming from the muffler or the carb? With all the built up gas you could have fouled a plug which will make it pop or have deposits on the plug makeing it fire on the intake stroke. Plus all the extra gas built up in the crank will make it pop. Are you using the correct plug?
Did you rebiuld this carb and did you set the fuel level correctly?
