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.

    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
