      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 .

auger will not run

Recommended Posts

I have a strikemaster lazer mag that is a few years old. it has the 2 hp Tecumseh motor, usually starts with a few pulls.  this years when i tried to start for the first time, the only way I can keep it running is with 3/4 to full choke, when I tried to throttle it, it dies.  I put in new gas mixed 100:1 using am-soil saber, and a new plug.  took the carb off and it seems to be working properly.  I am out of ideas. anyone have different ideas?

thanks

You need a carb kit for that auger. Most small engine shops will have them for that engine or you can order them directly from Strikemaster. The diaphragm and gaskets inside need replacing. The kit is about $20 or something, maybe less depending where you get it. Replace those things and it'll run like a champ. Stop using oxygenated fuel in it and you'll get a longer life on those gaskets and diaphragm.

New carb kit and cleaning will get you going.  Willmans on Anderson road should have the kit. 
 Take the carb off and bring that and the powerhead to be sure get what you need in one trip.

Probably needs the Walbro brand K20-WTA kit, (might be WTA-K20) this kit fixes a lot of different carbs, so you won't use all the parts in it.   Fowlers in Bloomington (MN) sells them for 10.13$ tax included.
