Tecumseh was bought by an American that plans to make small engines at sometime in the future. It will probably take some time to get a plant set up to do so.

I though Jiffys ran a briggs? The one I looked at had one. In my opinion a Briggs and Stratton has always been a superior engine. I just couldn't afford the Jiffy.

Jiffy ran a new engine on the new SD60i model this season, a economic price point of $299.99...that engine is one well proven on Eskimo augers.

2HP PerformanceModelSD60i.jpg

* Engine – Jiffy 45cc

* Gear Ratio – 12:1

* Auger Length – 36”

* Limited Warranty

1Yr.-Engine

1Yr.-Gear Box

1Yr.-Blade

* Transmission – Patent Pending

COLD STARTING PROCEDURE FOR MODEL SD60i

SEE OWNER’S MANUAL FOR SAFETY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Mix one gallon of Fresh Winter Blend regular gasoline with one container of Jiffy 2-Cycle oil. Use this fuel blend to fill tank to ¾ full.

1. Press primer bulb until clear gas (return) line is free of bubbles. (2 - 5 times)

2. Move rocker switch on ON or (I) position.

3. Move choke lever to FULL CHOKE or (I\I) position. (Operator’s left)

4. Depress throttle control with left hand and grasp the starter handle in your right hand.

5. Slowly pull starter handle until you feel resistance from engine, then pull vigorously.

6. Without releasing the starter handle or the throttle control, let handle return to original position and repeat step 5.

7. If engine doesn’t start after 5 - 6 pulls, press the primer bulb 2 - 3 times and repeat with steps 5-6.

8. After engine starts running, move choke lever to HALF CHOKE position until engine runs smoothly.

9. Move choke lever to RUN or (III) position. (Operator’s right)

10. To stop engine, push rocker switch to OFF or (0) position.

SPECIAL NOTE: If the engine does not start due to extreme cold temperatures, move unit to warm environment, remove spark plug and wipe off excess fuel, replace spark plug and repeat steps 1 – 9.

The only issue I seen with the new SD60i was the engine shroud was not well supported and a few were cracked early on in use. I was not too impressed with the throttle set up and linkage, I expect that to be changed too.

I think Jiffy is fine tuning this exterior shrouding and linkage and we will see a new look with greater durability but the same engine in "2010".

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
