      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 .

Or anybody else. My tachometer quit working. so i did some searching and found out about the voltage regulator may be at fault. I checked them and sure enough one of them is bad. I can see a big black spot through the semi clear potting over the PCB. The potting is also cracked and the black stuff is filling the crack. Its a 1995 175 efi mercury and it has 2 voltage regulators. Do I need to replace both or just the bad one? Is the sierra regulator as good or better than the OEM? It has a lifetime warr and less $. I don't have time to order one as I am leaving to fish the Wave Wacker next week.

If the other one tested good, then I don't see any reason to replace it.

For the money it's tough to beat the Sierra price... especially given the lifetime warranty.

Thanks for the reply. How do you test the other one? The one that is bad looks real bad. Does it use both or is there another seperate regulated charging system that's not being used?

Using an ohmmeter, connect the negative lead to the base of the rectifier and connect the positive lead to the other wires (yellows, and red) one at time--You should get continuity. Then reverse the leads, (positive to ground and neg to wires)----You should NOT get continuity.
