Jiffy Parts

7 posts in this topic

Anyone know where I can get a new On/Off toggle switch for my 3hp Jiffy STX? Any help is appreciated. It is in the on position so i can drill but I got a good shock killing the engine pulling the plug wire off so I may as well fix it soon. Thanks Steve

I would assume that if you can find a toggle that will fit the exact size it would work. If not, I would call Feldmann Engineering in Wisc. I'm pretty sure they make the Jiffy augers and may just send one to you.

Take off the old one and go to Radio Shack. If they don't have one on hand, they could get it shortly.

I broke mine off this year and got a replacement from a small engine shop in Forest Lake. It is a Jiffy replacement part. It is very easy to change even without removing the recoil housing. You just need a really long needlenose pliers to fish it back into place. My auger is a white Jiffy 3-hp. I have the part number at work so I could get it for you on Monday if you like.

It's a standard on-off switch and you can get them at Fleet Farm in auto section

I got mine today locally at C&S I guess they are a Jiffy/Tecumseh authorized repair shop. Yay! 17.99 for a little switch id a little ridic but it beats getting shocked.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
