      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 .

Blown fuse-rebuilt 1991 100Hp. johnson

Recommended Posts

About halfway through our fishing trip last week end, my rebuilt blew the 20 amp inline fuse on the motor. It was after we checked on the starter not engaging and the cowling barely fits over the motor. We may have scraped some wires, couldn't see any loose wires, where do I start looking? When I put a new fuse in, it will start, run but blows the fuse again. The T&T is wired through it also, so that goes out and will blow the fuse. Help!!!!

I would start at the battery cables and follow your way until you find a rubbed / pinched wire. I would start with the thicker cables and go from there.

If you can isolate when it does it (only when you hit the trim and tilt, or only when it's running) that should reduce the amount of time you'll have to spend looking.

Wouldnt the hot cable if it were frayed or grounded arch all the time when it hits metal? If you are hitting the key and flows enough to start but then kicks the breaker i would suspect the trigger wire or starter solenoid. How about replacing with a reset type breaker or inline fuse so you dont have to keep replacing them? good theft deturnant if you think about it but pain in butt when wanting to fish.

Since it doesnt blow while cranking, I'd look at the tnt.

While the engine is not running, cycle the tnt several times to isolate the problem as M_M suggested.
