      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 .

What's in that recoil case?

Recommended Posts

Well first thing I did to drop all my liquids on my 97 Sportsman 500 was take out the plug on the lowest part of the engine.

I didn't really watch to see what came out, since I was expecting engine oil. Well it didn't drain for long and the oil reservoir didn't drain any either.

Now with the identical plug in the top (looking like a place to fill) I'm wondering if there's any fluid I'm supposed to be adding to the recoil case.

I looked on-line last night, then I talked to a few guys at the parts counter today and even with the schematic on the computer, they couldn't explain the fill type plug either. They just figured I pulled the drain to let out any water that got in the recoil.

I asked them to make sure there wasn't a fluid I was supposed to add. They couldn't say that for sure. crazy

Could someone here please tell me?

The plug on the bottom of the recoil housing is for draining out any water that might be in there. The plug on top is there so you can look in and see the timing marks on the flywheel. No fluids in the recoil housing.
