      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 .

Check the timing, clean the carbs, check the compression, make sure the gas is fresh, run the old stand by seafoam through it and let us know if it made any difference at all. You want to do the easy stuff before you dig deeper.

It's possible...

It kind of depends on if there was some buildup prior to storing it with seafoam, or if there's gunk in the carbs (which seafoam wouldn't do too much for).

That is what was wrong with my 25hp, after I bought new fuel line, new gas tank, rebuilt fuel pump... all it needed was a shot of air through the jet... doh! Easy fix, I would measure how far the jet is from "all the way tight" - I put tape on screwdriver and then count the turns, its a bit easier to keep track for me wink

Then take an air compressor and give it a shot or two of air. Worked perfect for me. Good luck.

Well took it too Hannays the diaphragm was bad. One thing they told me was the corn whiskey gas they are selling is not good for outbroads.

Is there a diaphragm in the carb?... I don't recall seeing one in the ones I did, but there could be a combo carb/fuel pump I guess.

I do recall needing a new daiphragm in my Dad's motor when I was young, but I can't recall any more than that. Glad its working again for you!
