      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 .

Evinrude 90hp help

Recommended Posts

Purchased a 16' Sylvan with a 1992 Evinrude 90hp. Since buying the boat I have an intermittant problem with it losing power. Sometimes it runs fantastic, 40mph and 4800rpm, when it loses power it runs around 2200rpm. It idles and troll fine. I know this sounds strange, but when I go over another boats wake that will sometimes trigger the problem. Changed plugs and wires, ran great for two trips and now it's doing the same thing again. What I've done so far is: plus and wires, drained built in gas tank, changed fuel filter, carbs rebuilt, used different gas tank and hose thinking there might be something in the tank. Compression is 125lbs in all four cylinders. last night tried tapping on the CDI box to see if that did anything, it didn't. Would a CDI box cause this problem? I hate to keep throwing money at things when I don't know what causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's interesting that you say it happens mostly when you hit a wake. That would tell me that something may be loose....maybe. Or, a carb float could be sticking. Just thinking out loud here. Have you checked all your electrical connections to make sure they are not corroded and snug?

Checked all electrical connections, rebuilt carbs although they looked extremely clean. Took it to a certified marine mechanic that lives near a lake, went over our own wake numerous times but of course it wouldn't happen with him in the boat.

When it drops off, is it for an extended period? I'd be tempted to take a timing light with and when it does it, see what the ignition system is doing.
