      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 .

evinrude problem

Recommended Posts

I inherited a 15hp evinrude(don't know year) from my grandfather a couple of years back. I have used it infrequently for 3 years, but now I can store my boat at my house and plan on using it a lot.

This past weekend i took it out for the first time and noticed at trolling speed between 2 to 3 mph no water was being jettisoned from the motor, but when I revved it up the water would really shoot out, then nothing again at slower speeds. Any ideas about the problem and estimated cost for repair would be helpful (wife is expecting in about a month so $ could be ab issue)

Sounds like it needs a new impeller. Pretty inexpensive as compared to a rebuild of the motor if it goes out completely.

Twin city outboards would be able to tell you the age or someone on here might be able to by the serial number of the motor.

just so everyone knows, evinrude 9-9 and 15hp outboards don't really jettison water at low trolling speeds, if one where to cup their hand under the "pee" hole for a minute you could tell that condesation is coming through. only when the internal baffel is overwhelmed does it stream through.

i'm still having it serviced for peice of mind though.

thanks for the input WW, you seem to be right on if it does end up having a problem

they are a cake walk to replace if you are good with tools.. especially jhonson/ evinrude.. but water should always be comming out of the protal even at idle.. not alot but a little bit.. run it around a bit, take a water bottle and run the engine about 1/4 throttle in neutral it should fill the water bottle in about a min or two..

broken line, thats why I'm still having it serviced, I have heard from to many people that water should at least be dripping out, theres NO WAY that a water bottle would be filled in a minute or two by the mist coming out of the motor!

I had the same problem with my 84 70HP rude, replaced the broken hose and still got no stream. I took the side cover off and found a small blockage inside, pulled it out and she's been running like a champ since. This motor sat for 3 years before I got it this spring. I thought I was going to need to replace the impeller, guess I lucked out.

The Verdict is in: It turns out that the water pump was bad, so I'm glad I went through with the inspection, the last thing I need to do is replace a outboard!

    • Paint is roughy just used what I had but pretty dang happy with it for 30 bucks.  First charcoal test lasted 6-7 hours.A5B3A72F-6F87-445B-949E-92B20BF41ECF.MOV  
    • I still think sous vide is the ticket if you want the lean roast to be tender, juicy, and pink .  (must resist temptation to insert inappropriate remark here) Next I think I will try the accelerated simulated dry aging where the meat is brushed with fish sauce before sealing in the bag and going in the refrigerator, and then held at 103 for an hour or so (not too long) in the bath before cooking at 130.  
    • I purchased the FLX-28 last season after using the 18 for several years and wow, what a night and day difference!  I really enjoy the auto depth range feature and digital depth readout.  No more taking time to guess the depth!  Weed mode rocks in shallow water weeds when I'm looking for 'gills.  The two zoom zones are great especially for suspended crappies when the 6 foot bottom zoom isn't enough.  Now the bottom 12 feet is there.  Great battery life and it's much quieter than the 18.  Color customization is nice (I have it on palette 3) and I don't have any interference from any other flasher thanks to 20 rejection modes.  I've seen the Marcum 6 and 7s in action and they are also very nice units and allow for lots of customization.  Biggest issue is time to learn the features and the price point.  Still hard to beat the quality of Vexilar or the service the company provides!
    • My dad, may he rest in peace, used an old wood cutting bandsaw that he converted by making some sort of kludgey plywood things to keep the blade on the wheels.   Worked fine.  Not sure how easy it was to clean.   Also not sure how much he worried about it.   Ease of disassembly for cleaning, and blade retention in the presence of food grease would seem to be the big issues.  He cut up a lot of deer and a few moose and nobody got sick...  for what that's worth.  
    • Well Del, that's 3 more than he had!
    • Well, I had three, and that's about all I got.   
    • They've been ice fishing Upper Red since Nov 7th Were on track for a traditional winter
    • Great question! The only time I've found a need to do that with the K drill, is when I drill multiple holes side by side.   Really glad I bought a K drill, super light, and fast. The way our winters seem to getting, with less and less ice; I'm considering selling the Lazer Mag. Maybe some year we'll see an old fashion MN winter with 3' of ice and tons of snow....
    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
