      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 .

Rochester idle mixture screws?

Recommended Posts

I have an 88 Lund Tyee 5.5 with 3.0 ltr. engine with a rochester 2bbl. carb. The rear idle mixture screw has no effect on the engine while trying to adjust the carb. Is there an easy fix for this or does it need a rebuild? Thanks for any tips and ideas.

You can try removing the mixture screw and spray carb cleaner in hope that the blockage is there, but more than likely you will need to disassemble and rebuild the carb, it's probably deeper into the passages.

Just out of curiosity, what is the carb tag number?

The only number that I can find on the carb is 61714227. Is that the number you were asking about? Out of curiousity why were you wondering? Thanks- Greg.

Mercruiser used 2 carburators in that time era. The rochester which has 2 idle mixture screws and the Mercarb, which is nearly identical, but has only 1 idle mixture screw. Almost every 4 cylinder that I've seen with 3.0 as the model, as opposed to 140 hp as the model, has had a Mercarb on it. After doing a little digging I found both were used on the 181 cubic inch engine in that time. I asked mostly for future reference. Thanks
