      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 .

Stikemaster LazerMag

Recommended Posts

I have a 4 year old lazer mag that wont idle but starts and runs great. Everyone is telling me to take in so I did. Went to D rock and got a call saying it had no compression and cylinder scored not worth repairing. I am a diesel mechanic and I couldnt believe it had no compression. Checked myself and I get 115psi. Checked my 20 year MagIII plus and that had 96psi and that one purrs like a kitten. Checking around I found brand new OEM carb for 63.00 was wondering if you guys thought I should give it a shot or had any ideas???? Thanks

Since it sounds like you are familiar with mechanics, why don't you check it yourself? Do you have a scope at work that you can use to look through the plug hole and see the cylinder wall?

If the cylinder is scored, did you run the 100:1 oil mix? If the cylinder looks good, then you would just need to go through the carb, clean, and re-tune.

I did look in the cylinder and it has a some marks but it is not to bad and by the compression numbers doesnt seem to effect it. I didnt mess with it myself because I was being lazy. It has the tecumsh carb and it says its non adjustable is another reason I didnt mess with it. Couldnt find any info on adjustments.

About the cyl score I bought it at the end of the last ice season and it seemed good cut about 20 holes or so. I dont know what the previous owner ran in it but I run Amsoil at 50 to 1

My S/M had similar symptom as yours [ ran fine @ high speed, had a bad idle ]. As I was removing the fuel tank, I found the carb was loose. Tightened the carb, it's been fine since. Check the screws running thru the tank. The carb is sandwiched between the tank and engine. Hope this helps.

My LZRMag wouldnt idle either. I found that the plastic fuel inlet elbow on the carb had a hairline crack and was sucking air. $1.33 later it was fixed

The crack I had was noticeable. the new elbow when pushed on the the inlet would not rotate either. It is pushed onto a splined fitting.
