      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 .

1987 Johnson Lower unit need to drop out.

Recommended Posts

Have a 1987 40HRS lower unit that went out on a rock on Vermilion. I got a manual on it and I'm in the proses of pulling the lower unit off. I have everything off except This retaining screw and clip, witch I think is the last thing I need to do in order for it to come off. The manual says to remove shift rod retaining screw from shift cam Located in bottom of engine pan. I believe I see the retaining screw with some kind of clip on the end of the shifting shaft under the motor. When I pull this clip what does that Loosen or what happens after I pull it. And does the clip come completely off or just slide out of the way. The book I have really doesn't tell me what to expect after that. Hope some body can give me some advice. Thanks

I replaced the exact same lower unit a little over a year ago. I ended up buying one from Newfoundland on that auction site for $200. Took 3 weeks to ship crazy

I just have to say I got lucky on my 40hrs Johnson. I was not sure that I wanted to put an INS. claim in on it Just for the fact I couldn't reminber my deductible. I called and they said 100 bucks. So I brought in the boat and the lower unit, that I just got done pulling of course. Made a few call. All said and done the dealer found a re manufactured lower unit in Hackensack MN. My coast 150 with a new water pump. I guess this place in Hackensack, MN rebuilds lower units for selling. I will enquirer more about this for the future. To help out others sportsmen and women on this fine forum. Thanks again for all your help.

Actually, The owners name is Mike. Pappy (Tim) started the business and it's in the process of being handed down. I've been dealing with him for several years now and have been encouraging both Tim and now Mike to become a sponsor on FM. I think it would a benefit to all of us. Phred52

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
