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".

    • back about 15-20 years ago ya could go out on leech and pound the tullies.............off of stony point it be like a huge city out there fishing tullies...............and catching hundreds...... at that point no limit.....hence blood bath!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
    • Never underestimate what a pussycat in her prime can bring down.      
    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....  
    • So what is the Leech Lake Blood Bath Days???
    • Thanks guys for the quick ID response !  It's still hanging around this morning! Maybe another result of climate change?
