I own a strikemaster only a few years old and have been cleaning the carbs two or three times per winter... It's getting old, fast.

Yet everytime it stops running I rip the carb apart again then it runs perfect for the next few outings.

I was running 24:1 mix with suggested oils. I'm going to switch and start running 50:1 and see what happens...

Any opinions?
Is this a good idea or bad one?

I run my Jiffy model 30 @ 24:1 and have had no problems with it.

Does the Jiffy have the Tecumseh motor?

OK... case closed. I've just been worried that cutting the amount of oil in half might be a really bad idea. but between you guys and some other opinions I've gathered I don't think it'll be an issue.

Thanks for the help guys.

50:1 ratio works great. I ran mine too lean once, and seized up the piston but was able to work it loose, so go 50 to 1
