      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 .

Ole Evinrude

Question

Looking for alittle help...Got an old evinrude, 89, when i start her up, and she starts like a dream, the alarm in the controls goes off and stays on, this is on my pontoon. I am under the impression this is an over heating alarm???? The alarm comes on right away so there is no time for it to over heat and she is pumping water out real nice... Someone said it could just be the sensor, could this be? and where is the sensor housed.. Just can't afford the ninty bucks an hour to have it looked at!! Thanks guys for the help.

What horsepower? Is it oil injected? could be the oil injection/fuel pump (VRO). To eliminate the overheat warning, look for the sensor on the back of the block. It will have a tan wire connected to it. While the horn is sounding, disconnect the tan wire. Horn quits=bad temp sensor. Horn continues, it's coming from the VRO.

Ok, much easier to trouble shoot. Just do what I suggested then in regards to the temp sender.
