      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 .

60 hp Evenrude carbs still spewing gas.

Recommended Posts

I did a carb kit on my Johnson style carbs and things ran smooth in driveway but when I got it on lake a different story. It keeps flooding, gas runs out of the front non stop. I am going to disassemble again tonight and check the float to see if it floats, any of you mechanical gurus out there have any other suggestions for things to look at?

FWIW, I did carb job (see my other long post, with tons of good advice from the pros) and I had the float in upside down... doh! But my problem was just the opposite of yours. You do have to adjust to float, I learned smile

Good luck, it is frustrating, isn't it?... But nice when it is running again.

after tearing down the carbs for a 5th time, I think I have a few ideas. I found a hairline crack in a fuel return line. hmm, buy some more fuel line and see if that takes care of it. After that I am thinking about bad fuel pump.

If the gas is coming out the throat of the carb its either an improper float adjustment where the fuel level in the carb is too high or the float adjustment is correct but the needle and seat(inlet valve)is not stopping the gas flow into the carb.

Paul, a few questions to help narrow things down. Is this a 3 cylinder, 3 carb? Is it happening to all 3 carbs or just 1? How did it run before you rebuilt?

A few things that can cause gas to run out the front:

Improper float level

Defective float

Defective needle and seat

A plugged float bowl vent will also cause gas to free flow through the main jet.
