Ice auger repair
hoytpower, the old jiffy one- armbreaker had a zerk fitting installed on the gear case. In your gear case, the grease may be simply low or dried out. A cheap fix would be drill & tap and install a zerk fitting.
Check out H2Outitters Marine and Sport Repair. They are a Master Strikemaster Master Service Center. 17207 198th Avenue, Big Lake Mn 55309. (763) 262-2628. They have done work for me and some friends. Communication is top notch! Tim and Bill know there stuff.
I had lots of holes from my early purchase, when Strikemasters had metal handles. After over ten years of use it started to get weak so I brought it to my local Green Bay guy. He ground the valves and seats and it was like new again. Lots of small engine guys have a backlog of repairs now so be prepared to wait in line for a while. Now I change the blades at their first sign of wear. Hope it lasts another decade.
