Both augers will not turn to blow snow thru shoot.

Hit a patch of medium size rock while clearing drive and about a thre lb stone got lodged into auger. When this happened the auger stopped turning and blowing snow. Now the auger will not engage when lever is pressed down. Motor still runs fine, what could it be. thanks

Does the TC Omega have a problem using 150 grains of blackpowder or its' eqivalent?

Hello jps.... No problem at all with 150 grains. In fact, that is the spec. max. amount. The Thompson Center Omega Z5 was designed with simplicity in mind. It is easy to shoot and easy to clean. The breech seals the 209 primer from rain and snow and is easy to open with a simple forward motion of the lever on the trigger guard. The sealed breech plug design also prevents the crushing of Pyrodex pellets. The Z5 can handle a powder load of up to 150 grains for more power or longer range shooting.

Technical Information

  • Exposed hammer
  • Sling swivel studs
  • Rubber recoil pad
  • Fiber optic sights
  • Blue chrome-moly steel with a silver weatherguard finish

    What should the gas oil miz ratio be for an older model 30 jiffy ice auger... fustarted fisherman

    I work out at a remote fishing lodge in Alaska and the Jiffy auger we have here says 24:1 on the unit but I know for a fact ( cu'z I do the mixing ) that we run it using a 40:1 mix Ratio and it works great.
    I have heard stories from other fishermen that they are running ' Amsoil* ' in there Jiffy augers at a mix ratio of 80:1 and they say that it cut down on the smoking of motor.
    fish on,stay warm and have fun,

    Auger on snowblower turns sporadically and results in snow not being blown. Could it be the shear pins?


    It is most likley the gearbox. The bronze gear fails from not being greased. If the shear pins sheared, it would not work at all.

    Sorry, but hope you can use this info to remedy your problem.

    Replaced shear pins on right side standing at the controls, auger still does not turn?

    does the 2nd stage auger turn? if the shear pin broke you may have ripped your belt part also. Take the belt cover off and inspect the belt assembly.

    Two problems if there is no spark it could be several things, the prop not spining is normal if you sucked up rocks, it's design to do that to save the motor. It's a rubber spacer. I'm parting out my 750 xi ss. Let me know if you need parts

    Your best bet is to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a Thermal Tarp. This will make sure that seams and connector parts don't become damaged in harsh weather. Drape the tarp over the top and get some decorative rocks or stones and place them all around the edges of the tarp, as to hold it down and still look nice in the fall and winter seasons.
    Hope you liked to advice!

    the inside of the prop has a rubber between the prop itself and the inside splines to act as a shock absorber,say if you were to hit a rock. that rubber had spun out and the splines are turning inside the prop. the prop is screwed. seen it 100 times before.
