Cleaning auger carb

Recommended Posts

Strikemaster Lazer mag express, takes 30-40 pulls to get it running. New gas, good plug. Any suggestions on an easy way to clean the carb without pulling it all the way off?

well if u can get it running,drain some gas out,id say down to about 1/4 tank then put some SEA-FOAM in the gas tank,however much is recommened or a little more,and start it up and let it run for a bit and see if it helps,else ur gunna have to take it apart,sea foam is the shize.....as ppl around here call it "mechanic-in-a-can" haha best of luck!!!

Running some seafoam through it is an option to see if it cleans it up, but if you really want to do a thorough job you'll have to pull it apart.

how much "new gas" have you run through it? It may take a few runs to get fresh gas through it. The sea foam may help, but Ill also agree you probably need to pull it off to clean it. its not all that complicated though.

Can you put sea foam in and then just use it or should you run it through all at once? Has anyone had good luck using seafoam on a strike master?

Thanks

my strikemaster lazer mag wasnt staying running at the start of this season so i took of the spark plug and sprayed some carb cleaner right in there and let it sit for about 4 hours and started it up and it runs like a champ now

I always forget to drain/run my Jiffy dry in the spring. But I run Sea-Foam in the gas mixture. I've never had carb or diaphragm issues and my auger is 13 years old. Sea-foam is highly recommended by the mechanic how worked on my auger twice.

I have an old Mag 2000 head with a lazer bit and hadn't run it since last year when I just threw it in the corner after LOTW. I went out to start it this year and it wouldn't start in about 20 pulls. No biggie, I pulled the plug, removed the gas tank and line, and took the side plates off the carb. Sprayed some Sea Foam Deep Creep in there, cycled the piston a few times without the plug to get the cylinder walls cleaned of carbon, and blasted some into the carb. I also sprayed some in the fuel line to clean the garbage out of there. Put it back together, put some new gas in it and it fired on 1/2 a pull. Same plug from two years ago too. Sea Foam Deep Creep or Knocker Loose will get them things running like nobody's business.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
