Help with old eskimo/tecumseh carb

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has a fix for my old eskimo/tecumseh power auger. I cleaned out the gas tank, replaced hose, diaphram, needle and seat. The only way I can get it to run is dump gas directly into carburator. I blew out the seat area out to the inlet for the gasline. Gas rolls thru hose so I know the tank and hose is good. Replacing the diaphram and needle/seat should take care of the rest.??? Please help, I want to get out there and bend my pole!!!!

Cjent,it seems that if they sit a while,the orifices in the carb get varnished closed.A few years ago I bought a carb kit for mine,took it apart,cleaned it good with carb cleaner,blew it out with air and re-assembled.It worked for a few years but towards the end of last season it started to only run with the choke in the half-way position.This past fall I bought a new carb for it.It was pretty cheap and it runs great.Good Luck.

cjent, you'd do better if you were to post in the "Equipment and Expert Info" forum. There's a lot of guys that'll probably have some tips for you. ......Can any of the Mods move this please? I dont have the faintest idea how to do it. grin.gif Oh by the way, WELCOME to FM! smile.gif

Thank you for the advice, Sinker, it's exactly what a small engine repair man told me this morning. I will post on Equipment and Expert Info next time "can it be luck?". I really have found this site very informative. Thanks again!

The Eskimo is running!!!!! The problem was that there was a rubber seat already in the seat (extra one in the bag too!), so when I put the new one in it kept the needle from contacting the diaphram. Duh! Went fishing from 12:00 to 5:00 today and caught 2-12" crappies and 6 smaller ones. Going out tommorrow around 7:00 a.m. to see if I can get them went they bite better! Right on the bottom in 30' on spikes.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
