      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 .

Do you mean you pump the throttle? Or do you have to physicaly close the choke on the carburator? I ask only because there is an automatic choke on those.

It does, however, sound like a carb issue. It could be as simple as an idle mixture adjustment, or it may need to be rebuilt.

Being that it is a 1989, It should have standard ignition. They didnt switch to the digital ignition til 90. So, You may also want to have a look at the points. Personnaly, if it were mine, I would plan on getting a tune up kit and starting out fresh with a new ignition.

I was just about to ask about having to choke it.

As said, you have and automatic choke. Those of us that grew up driving carberated autos with automatic chokes know how to cold start.

Normal cold starting procedure is:

Even though its an automatic choke it has to be set. Do that by Full throttle then back to a high idle. Some I/Os want a little extra fuel to start. Your carb has an accelerator pump. Each time you push the throttle forward it pumps fuel.

So depending on the engine it might want a few pumps or it might not need just the initial one to set the choke. Just remember too many will flood the engine.

Just so we have that clarified, what to you mean by having to choke? Physically removing the engine cover and manually closing the butterfly?

A warm engine shouldn't need to be choked. It could need a shot of fuel but pushing the throttle forward then again that could be enough to flood a warm engine.

Have you replaced the fuel filters? You have one inside the carb just behind the fuel inlet and most likely a fuel/water separator that takes like what looks like a oil filter.

I'd then go on to checking, Idle mixture adjustment, fuel pump pressure, points and condenser, and if need be a carb cleaning and rebuild. Good thing about the rebuild is the kits have very good documentation. Just read through carefully and take your time.

Many years ago I made the mistake of thinking a filter was clean after being inspected. A lot of money and time later, I changed the filter.

So you have to pump the the gas to get it started then it seems to flood. Check to see if the choke closes when cold. After setting the choke look to see if it opens a little. Let it warm up then check the position of the choke. After the engine starts there is a thing called a choke pull off. Can't say what type you have but after it starts it shouldn't be full choked.

Flame Arrester, is it clean.

It has an electric choke on it and as frank said, when it is set, it should open just a little. It should open up as voltage runs through the spring. The choke pull off is mechanical and should open the choke a little more when the throttle is advance to WOT.

You have to pump it to start it and then it will die and smells flooded? Right? What this really sounds like is the carb is dirty or out of adjustment along with a possible choke problem.

Frank also mentioned the cleaning the flame arrestor.
