      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 .

What size motor? I'm thinking not seeing it and in good shape no rips in seat or track about $1,000+ now for a 15 year old sled. You can check prices on the c/list as well to get a ball park.

to state the obvious, you need to start it up and run it, so you can truthfully say it runs well.   Then look at Craig's around the state and see what sleds are going for.  On a trailer so you could deliver it? 

Remember transactions like this are a cash kind of deal unless you really trust the guy.

IF ya get it, pull those plugs, spray the cylinders good with WD-40 or fogging oil, flush fuel lines, drain ANY gas/oil in it, spray carb throats with some cleaner, and SLOWLY pull it over 4-5 times before ya really yank her to start it. Get it going, dump some Seafoam in that 1/4 tank of fresh non-oxy gas with the good 2 cycle air-cooled oil you just put in it....and let it run awhile before ya start revving it up..:grin:

that's all well and good Reb but if he didn't Summerize it last year it won't do any good.  The fetzer valves obviously got bent when he unhooked the odometer three years ago.  She did win a few of those Summer water skipping contests in Hayward a few years ago.  Took her a few dunkings to get the hang of it but after a while she was pretty dang good if i remember right.

maybe try a new plug... if you can get her running I'd buy it if you take 3rd party checks?

let me have time. I want to grease it. I also want snow to run it to make sure all is good. but yea that can work.

 

reb,  I pull fogging oil in it, the gas was siphoned out each spring AND I have run nothing but non oxy juice in it for years!!!!!!!

O cripes, was that the Women's Haul-azz contest, where the person that formerly owned it, AKA known as "Bodacious Bertha", came of the water so hard, with so much momentum, she continued up the beach, and clean thru the side of the Polecat Inn, smashing into the stage where Snakey Jake and the Squat-thrust Five was setting up?! I heard about THAT!

Ya, I bet those slides and bearings are toast, not to mention the the pistons in those scored cans. (No, not hers) Might be a major rebuild..,,,,,,,:crazy:

I saw that coming...sorry.  I'm sure they have multiple divisions that accomodate everyone.  I have a buddy with one leg and he drives a snowmobile like a maniac, he had one with a nitro button...no kidding.

I have a 2002 Arctic Cat Sabre Cat with 300 miles on it, no kidding.  Electric Start, reverse, and I drive it to the fish house and back about a mile each way ten times a year.  It's like the old lady that only drives to church that has a twenty year old buick with 13,000 miles on it.

btw-it doesn't start right now cause I forgot to start it once a month this Summer like my mechanic told me to. Lord knows opening the garage door at the cabin and turning the key would have been soooooo hard to do.

reb-  I thought that he was buying one too.  After reading over his OP he didn't indicate either way, so our mistake.

What I do know is the thing doesn't run :) and he may come to our house and try to kill us.

And, I really DID think he WAS buying one. That's why I posted the engine advice. (been rebuilding them since about, oh, '72 or '73, back when I was racing...)  Hey, admit it, we did get you guys to smile, didn't we? :grin: 

That's what keeps me going/gets me thru some days. I'd trade places to be any one of ya, but some things I wouldn't wish on anyone.
