      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!!!

HELP PLASE! thread repair

Recommended Posts

I have a 77' evinrude 15hp. I ended up stripping the hole in the head where the spark plug screws in. I was too exited to get er runnin. I did some research and have so far found the helicoil inserts to be the best bet on fixing this beast. Any other suggestions? Any good shops around NE metro?

helicoils workd great...but keyword but they can back out once you put in your new spark plug in. you can do one of 2 things to fix your problem. (trust me I did the same thing last year)

1. get a new head (a used head from a bone yard)

2. helicoil the stripped thread.

pros of option 1.

you don't have to worry about helicoils backing out

cons of option 1.

might cost more money to repair.

pro of option 2.

less money to repair

con of option 2.

heilcoil backing out

if you go with option 2 as i did. you NEED to find someone who knows how to put in the heilcoil. I had friend do my head and has been doing it for 40+ years. either way you have to take the head off and replace the head gasket. I live in annandale and so does my friend who put the heilcoil in if you want his number e-mail me at kc0myy@hotmail. the good thing about heilcoils are if you have someone who knows how to put in the heilcoil you will never strip out the threads on the head again because the heilcoils are made out of very hard metel. again any qestions e-mail me
