Auger Problem

Recommended Posts

I am not much of a mechanic, but my auger seized up on me is there anything I can do with it or is it junk? I think my buddies put regular gas in it when we were out fishin... ouch.

Take the spark plug out and see if it will roll over. If it does, then see if the piston goes up and down. If it dont' bummer!

Define "seized". Do you mean you can't turn it over with the pull cord, or you were running it and the motor locked?

The motor locked while it was running and the pull chord won't turn it over now.The pull chord won't come out at all.

If the piston is wrecked can it be rebored or is it a total loss?

Try pouring kerosene into the sparkplug hole and let it sit for a few days. I loosened up a lawn mower engine that way once. Good luck.

it sounds like it is shot. You can probably get it rebored but that might be pretty costly. The other option is a new short block still a expensive option but cheaper than new. If you can get the motor loosed up take off the air clean/exaust and this should allow you to look it the cylinder. The cylinder walls and piston are most likely going to be scored which basically will mean it is shot. If you wanted a excuse for a new auger this is probably it.

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
