      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 .

Jiffy model 30 Auger

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this has been gone over before, if it has can somebody show me where, I can't seem to find it. I took out the auger this fall and replaced the gas, replaced the plug and took off the carb and sprayed cleaner into it. It started good. Now that I need to use it, it won't start!!! I'm guessing it is the carb, because there is plenty of spark. I pump it 5 - 10 times and pull and pull. It just won't fire. How exactly do you clean the jets in carb? I'm very stupid when it comes to engines and carbs. Thanks for the info in advance.

Dump all the old fuel out first.

Pour some straight SEA FOAM in the tank and let it sit overnight after you prime it up good. Don't try to start it, just let it sit.

Dump the remaining gunk out of the tank and flush. Remove the jet needle from the seat.(NOTE how many turns it took to remove the screws.)

With a low pressure air hose blow the carb out after removing the jet screws. Pour some more SEA FOAM in the tank and prime it again so the gunk runs out of the jets. Blow it out again and replace the needle into the seat. The general rule of thumb is 1 1/2 turns from the seat will get the auger to fire.

DO NOT bottom out the needle to the seat this will damage the needle and the seat.

Add some fresh mix with a dose of SEA FOAM added, prime it up with the choke on, and give it a go.

Make sure the plug is good and gapped properly and you should be popping that Jiffy off with one pull.
