parts for eskimo augers


Recommended Posts

the origional on my eskimo was a piece. They had a really cheap brass insert pressed into the plastic cap. I think i just went to FF and picked up one for an strike master, or a juffy and worked just fine. as long as the threads are the same, it don't matter, they all have breathers on them.

The breather allows air to flow into the gas tank when the engine is running. When the carb is pumping gas it will create a vacuum in the gas tank to the point where it cannot pull gas through the line anymore. This will cause the engine to loose power and stall out. Be sure to open it when starting your engine and close it when you are done, or gas can and will come out of the breather when the auger is layed down.
