      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 .

Which screw is the high sped idle jet screw on a 2 hp tecumsah (sp?) motor. My auger quits under a load, and after warm up will only drill at full choke. It has fresh gas, with seafoam. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for a great forum.

I have a similar problem, mine won't stay going unless I keep giving it gas in between drilling holes. Should I be turning the L screw 1/4 turns clockwise until it runs better at low speeds? Will this effect how it runs at higher speeds? I don't want to mess the top end up, because it runs great right now when I'm drilling.

I wish I knew more about small engines.

Threes 3 adjustments. Idle Speed: which is a set screw on the linkage. This adustment simply sets the RPM's at idle.
Low Speed fuel mixture: Its possible to lean this out TO MUCH and then compinsate with the Idle Speed.
High Speed fuel mixture: Set this till you get high RPM's at full throttle under a load. Then turn out 1/4 turn, Why? so you arent running to lean.


Evenflow, We dont know if your getting to much or not enough gas. Turn your low speed in {clockwise) while counting turns till it just stops, dont over tighten the adjustment needle.
Now back it out to where it was. Start the auger and turn out (counterclockwise)
1/4 turns. If you improvement then go back to your starting point and turn in 1/4 turns.

Hey ST,

I finally got around to adjusting my my auger and there are only TWO screws, now I'm really confused... There is one for the idle speed, and one that has L and H on opposite sides. Should there be another screw somewhere? Do I have to open the carb body? Or look somewhere else?
