      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 .

1990 110HP Evinrude question

Recommended Posts

father recently purchased a different/bigger boat, and we are curious about a few things. its a 1990 alumacraft phantom v17 with a 110hp evinrude V4 outboard. He recieved two props with the package, one that came on it is a little dinged up and is stamped 13x19. there is another one in the boat brand new that says 14x19. they are both steel (not stainless). Whats the difference between the two?? The one that is on there right now takes awhile to pop up on plane. would the other one be pitched different. if im thinking right the 19 would be the degree of pitch. im not sure what the 13 and 14 stand for.

this leads me into my next question, at wide open she runs about 4300 on the tach. To me that seems a little low? maybe not im not sure. would prop change this at all?

Last question, and this has been addressed in another thread, but not for this particular motor, but she veers to the right pretty hard if you let go of the steering wheel. there are two things I know that need to be addressed, first one is obvious, the skag is bent slightly to the side. Question: Can this be heated up and bent back straight with out snapping it off? second thing to adjust after the skag gets straightened out would be the trim tabs. Where are these and how to adjust?

any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry.. I must have missed your post.

Your props are probably aluminum if they're not stainless steel, unless they're stainless, but painted.

The difference between the two is that the 14 X 19 has a larger diameter, and therfore, should provide more holeshot as the blades are larger.

Yes, your RPM's are way low... they should be 5500 RPM.

Do you have a rough idea what kind of speed he was getting (gps preferably)? I'd like to make sure tach's good and on the right setting prior to suggesting a different prop since it sounds odd that this rig wouldn't be turning higher RPM's with this prop.

Yes, your skeg can be straightened, although I'm not sure how it's done.. I've never done it. But, if it's bent pretty good that could definitely contribute to the boat pulling one direction.

The trim tab is located directly above the prop. Adjust it the direction that the boat pulls.

only 4300, even with a 19, seems very low too me. The first thing I would do is a spark and compression test just to be sure the engine is in good shape.

In regards to the skeg, Its been my experience that aluminum will bend once really well and trying to staighten will often break things.

thanks guys, i'll gps the speed this weekend to make sure the tach is working properly. it seems to be though. dad found a guy in town the does welding and metal work that will fix the skag up. im going to put the 14" diameter prop on, as the 13" one that is on right now is a little dinged up. i'll report back the speed.

Compression and spark should be good as the guy that had it before us kept it up very good and has the reciepts to prove it.

i have a lund 1700 fisherman with a 110 Evinrude i had a 14x17 prop on but went to a 14x15 prop I like the 14x15 better for the hole shot and I didnt lose much top end speed I run about 5500 RPM at full throttle

Ok, ran it last night with the new prop on it 19 deg, 14" dia.

Its still really slow out of the hole, but now im thinking its more the engine, when giving it throttle it revs good at first then gets doggy for awhile, almost until it gets up on plane some, then it runs better again, topping out at 4200rpm on the tach, and 35mph on the gps. This was with me and my father and our gear (normal load for us).

So the focus now im guessing is the motor. its been gone through recently, new fuel pump, vro pump but it was fogged and has sat for a year and a half before he bought it. It had some gas in it, not much and I believe the guy said it was treated. We filled the tank up and added stablizer/cleaner. It starts up fine, it idles fine, it runs at full throttle fine (besides being about 1000rpm shy of where it should be) its just doggy when you punch it. suggestions?? clean carbs, bad gas, ?????

edit: i should add that the 35mph was with a full livewell also.

thank-you in advance for any suggestions/help/advice. Its what makes this site awesome!

i think we are going to try and trade the new prop for something along the lines of a 15 or 17 degree, maybe try both out and find the one that works better. thanks for the input.

as for the motor we are goign to do compression test and tune-up carb clean, hopefully that takes care of the bogging down.

    • That was exactly the reason I went with the AprilAire humidifier with the outside temperature sensor. With the outside sensor, it truly is "set & go"; I know me well enough that I wouldn't be running to the furnace and constantly changing the setting. It cost more money, but it really does work well. BTW, the furnace burners don't have to be firing; as long as the furnace fan is running, the humidifier is running.
    • Sure it is.  A high powered pellet rifle is almost a necessity if you can’t be cracking off 22 long rifles around the house.  I’ll have no further contributions to derailing this thread. 
    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
