      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 .

Cracked Coils (Pics)

Recommended Posts

I posted this on the St. Cloud Area forum and didn't get a response. Maybe some more people on this forum can point me in the right direction. I know of a used parts dealer in the cities (Shokepee) that could help me out but was looking for something closer. Any help would be appreciated.

The motor starts but doesn't keep running and it has a lot of fuel like it is flooding. I think that it might have to do that the coils are cracked and their isn't a good consistant spark? Any other signs of what cracked coils might be doing to my motor?

So I am for sure looking for two coils (used but operational) for a '76 Johnson (15R76A)(Part number #0581407). I can't get her to keep running and I have two large cracks running down both of the coils. I don't want to pay top dollar in case that isn't the problem, USED would work just fine. Thanks

Here are some pics.

Thanks,

Minners

If you have an opportunity to run it in the dark with out the hood, you will see spark jump out to ground.

Have you checked the compression? kinda looks like its been hot before.

Haven't checked compression. Although just pulling it over it still "bumps" along as though it still has decent compression. What would cause you to believe that it was hot before? Just wondering. I figured that the spark would be running down the side of the plugs and that is what casued the burned black underneath them. Would there be more indications if she cooked?

Thanks

The discoloration or the spots that appear to be burned. I'm not saying that I'm sure it has cooked, but when I see something like that, the first thing I like to do is a compression test. Use a good compression tester to check compression.

I had a '74 Evinrude 15hp (very similar to this model) I sold to a friend, and I had noticed that a spark jumped from the rubber spark plug cap to the engine block. Because of this, the engine would not run!

I took the rubber plug cap off the wire and placed the wire to the plug directly...no more jumping spark, and engine ran. Can you explain that?

Maybe see if yours is acting this way minners?
