jiffy model 30 spark plug and gap
« on: Jan 23, 2008, 11:35 AM »
I bought a used jiffy model 30 auger. The person I bought it from didnt have any paper work on it. What is a good replacment spark plug (I need to know what #) and what should the gap be ?

Thanks

Scott

I find that an Autolite or NGK work better if you can cross reference them. I use Autolite in my Jiffy, but it is 2 hp.

Are the J-17LM and the RJ-17LM The same plug ? The Auto Zone guy says they dont make the RJ-17LM  just the J-17LM

For maintenance on your Giffy go to there web site and they have a downloadable area for your Jiffy 30 with everything you need to maintain your auger...also if you are curious you can email them with your ssn of your auger and they will tell you what year it was manufactured.... hope this helps

Here's the address for the manual                                     http://www.jiffyonice.com/manual.htm

I know this is an old post but the fuel mix is not 24/1 but 40/1. Now I know you can tinker with this some what but I wouldn't think tinkering with it by  16/1 would be to much. The manual says 40/1 or 3.2 oz. per Gal.

R stands for resistor type plug...the resistors are to keep electrical  static ( from the ignition system) from interfering with televisions and radios....
