      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Merc Kiekhaefer....looking for specific part(s)

Recommended Posts

I accidentially broke off the throttle arm on my old Merc outboard. Just wondering if anyone would happen to have the part or parts needed. I thought I would try local before trying an online store.

It is a Mercury Kiekhaefer 200...20 HP. Serial # 2249989. I believe it is a 1967. It looks exactly like this...

[Please read forum policy before posting again, thank you]

Here are some pictures I took of the piece that is broken...



It broke at the "elbow" joint that moves the arm from vertical to horizontal. The other piece of this joint attaches to the engine. That too will have to be replaced. Notice I have used vice grips and duck tape as a cheap, temporary fix. It still goes!




So if anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it!!!

That stinks man. I think you can find a couple of used outboard salvage yards around central Minnesota that may be able to pull those parts for you. Try searching this forum for "used outboard parts"

I had that exact motor, a few years older though. It was handed down to me in rough shape. I had a little shop in the town of Dorset (outside of park rapids) fix it up for me. It used to be "Bobs" but now i think its called Johnson's on the water service or something like that. They had ORIGINAL mercury parts and set me up nicely when i went there. Might be a place to start? The place had been around for year and years, they have piles of older outboards for parts there.
