      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 .

Outboard motor cutting out

Recommended Posts

I have a 1979 chrysler 75hp outboard motor, the thing runs great at idle and even slower speeds, but as soon as i crack it to wide open throttle it starts to miss then it shutters then it dies, i put it back in neutral hit the key and it starts right back up. I dont have the money to replace the motor. Is it a carb problem? timing? it puzzels me. I am pretty good with a wrench so if someone could just help me get going in the right direction that would be great. Any advice is good advice, thank you.

I bet it is the fuel line or bulb or fittings. I just had a 50hp that starts and runs great, but when tubing this weekend, I found it bogged when turning tight. Same sypmtoms you are talking about. So I had an old fuel line from a different motor (not bad, just old) and put cleaned up old fittings, put it on the newer fuel line and bulb, and presto.... all running fine.

My fittings must have been leaking when just a little bit of pressure was put on the fitting going into the motor. These were the cheap plastic ones from a "generic" fuel line from big box store. Put the Merc fittings back on and now running great.

Good luck.

it could be a head gasket.. $30 mine went out on sat and it would idle fine but wouldnt go over 10 mph, does it smoke alot? check the spark and clean the plugs... put a helathy dose of seafoam in the tank and let it idle for about 5 to 10 min the crack it open..
