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 is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
