      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 .

88' Mariner Tiller losing top end and idling higher than usual...

Recommended Posts

I was out last night cruising at 26mph (80% OT) when my motor immediately dropped in speed. Since that happened my motor dropped in overall top speed down to 20mph at WOT and idles at a higher than usual RPM. I noticed at the tiller handle the furthest down I can throttle is into the START position and not fully down to the IDLE position. I would like to think that the throttle cable might be sticky somewhere? I'm wondering what might this might be signs of? Cheers guys.

I'd pull the hood off and make sure the throttle linkage on the carbs are able to travel their full range of motion (from low idle stop to fully open) and see if there's something impeding it's travel, or loose hardware that's not allowing it to move fully.

Update: Checked it out and did some tinkering and now my throttle is unresponsive? I can go in and out of gear but it is stuck idling at the same speed in neutral, forward and reverse?

You didnt mention the hp but, lift up the tiller handle and look underneath at the shaft, is it moving? could either be a broken cable or part of the shaft wore out.

Thanks Ralph. I do have a 45hp. The shaft seems to be turning inside the handle....I did buy this tiller assembly used as my last one snapped. I didn't think there was much to the assembly but maybe they wear out over time?
