      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 .

Minnkota question

Recommended Posts

Is the prop mounted correctly (ie. on straight and square)?

Is the prop damaged and out of balance?

Does the prop shaft have any play in it?

Have you pulled the prop to make sure the shaft isn't wrapped with fishing line or anything like that?

Take the prop off. Unless you have a dial indicator which you don't, on slow speed take a stationary object braced on one end and hold the other to the prop shaft. If there is any wobble that will account for the vibration. If it spins true your problem would be in the prop.

I had a minkota that I had hit a rock with at a pretty good speed and after that it always wobbled at anything over 7. Must have bent something in the shaft Im guessing. Check the easy things listed above and if that dont fix it take it to a shop or just live with it.

Might be a bent or worn shear pin on the output shaft...replace the shear pin. You can get the pin kits at most MK dealers.

Still wobbles..than it must be the prop out of whack..time to replace it.

Keep the old one for a spare just in case you bust a blade and need a temp.

I've never seen that much line on a prop shaft before. And the shearpin was bent. No wonder it shook so bad. Took care of both, thinking that should be fixed. Thanks for the help.

Removing line and new pin did not work. Looks like it might be the shaft.It is such a bad shake, either will fix or replace. Thing is, I fish the rivers so much, it is usually run at 50% or better.
