StrikeMaster Lazer Mag.............help needed
« on: Nov 27, 2010, 12:51 PM »
I just picked up a Lazer Mag auger, and it's missing a spring or linkage between the throttle cable and the carb. It has the Tecumseh engine, and is about 5 years old.

Does anyone have any pictures of the linkage between the cable and the carb?
Could anyone take their fuel tank off and take a picture for me?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Steve

Found some info on the Strikemaster website, looks like it's the "governor spring" that I'm missing.
Does anyone know if that's included in the carb rebuild kit?

I'm going to order a new fuel tank kit, and the carb rebuild kit(if that spring is included)........$50 for the 2 parts to get it running great again isn't bad.

spring would be cheaper   but everyone knows there is no ice in the tropics!

I know the auto parts stores have the springs, but getting the right one would be the challenge.

I would like to see a picture, I know someone has to have this auger sitting around.

I had the same problem last year. I fixed it with a spring of an old weedwacker. It was easy and worked like a champ.

I had my 2000 apart yesterday cleaning the carb. That spring is about a in. long and maybe 1/4 in round. Very fine wire. I would think any small engine repair shop would be able to help. Maybe this will help/. Sprig is just above fuel line and diafram cover.

Thanks for the pic.............that's the little spring I need.

I emailed Strikemaster to see if they could help me out, waiting for their response.

I put the new tank and new governor spring on today. Filled the tank and it fired up.
Runs a little rough at idle then dies. Revs up good, but idle is not smooth like it should be.

Any ideas?

Have you tried adjusting the jets on the carb?

Maybe the idle needs to set a little higher. i may be wrong but that probably only has one mixture screw. Strikemaster should be able to tell you how many turns out to set it.

I think it only has a idle adjust. Did you remove the carb and take the diaframs and needle out. Clean and reinstall. Be careful use some carb clean.

jiffy is the way to go . very reliable. air screw goes all the way in then one in a qaurter out. then trie it . then set idle. thats after cleaning. jet could be tarnished.
