      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 .

Squeal noise on Yama F150 4stroke?

Recommended Posts

Have a 2006 F150yamaha, after running it for awhile it gets a slight squeal at lower speeds, from 0 throttle to about 2000rpm or so, its kinda the same sound as on the older cars when the alternator belt wasnt tight enough, i looked under the hood but theres no place i could see where it might come from, it has only one cogged belt.

Could the noise be comming from the "idler" pulley? it dont appear that theres any way to lube it? if i remember right my old 80yamaha 4 stroke did it a few times also, any ideas or help would be great!! thank you

my 115 does this from time to time, its from a small bushing that they say just needs a shot of lube. its worked for me for some time now.

here is a pic of the location (screw driver pointing to it) of the shaft/bushing. I snagged the pic from another site.

Yep, that's pretty common with Yamaha 4-strokes and it sounds exactly as you described....like a squealing fan belt. The bushing is the culprit.

Thanks for the help guys! i think i located the shaft, i took cover off and put a mark on the part i thought it was and turned the motor slightly by hand and the mark moved with it, so i took the oil can and put a shot where the shaft goes down into the bushing....we will try it out this comming weekend at leech lake! thanks again!
