      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 .

Merc 50 hp Pressure???

Recommended Posts

I took a 1998 50 hp Merc in today to have the engine pressure tested before I buy it. Im totally ignorant on this stuff but here is my question: The top two cylenders were both at 125 cold. However the bottom one was at 105. The mechanic then started the engine and let it warm up for a few minutes. After that he checked the pressure again and all three cylnders were at 125. Is this acceptable and what would cause the difference?? This was the first time the engine was started in about two months and it was cold out today (10 degrees). Any guidance is appreciated.

Dirk, there is no problem with motor.
Reading with motor cold gives you lower results since piston rings don't seal well. You pressure of 125 on all of them is good, it would be bad if difference of pressure between cylinders is more than 10% (eg. top 2 at 125, bottom at 100), then you wold have to go through some troubleshooting (decarbonizing motor, etc.) before con****ing it as a possible rebuild.

I wouldn't worry if I was you.
