Jiffy 30 3HP Tecsumeh Engine Trouble
« on: Jan 13, 2015, 03:28 PM »
Okay fellas, here's the deal.  I have a 3hp Tecsumeh engine jiffy and it bogs down/wont drill when under a load.  Things I've done:  Changed spark plug, put new fuel in, sprayed carb cleaner in the h/l adjustment screw holes and blew out with air and adjusted the carb screws currently set at: H- 1 1/4 turn from tight L- 3/8 turn from tight.  I've adjusted the screws up and down to no avail.  Do I need a new carb kit or to take it to a small engine mechanic.

Thanks!
