      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 .

My Johnson 25hp Motor?

Recommended Posts

Question for the motor heads. I have a Johnson Motor with the Model No. 20BA 76E. Now I called Robbinsdale Marine a Johnson dealer and the guy said its a 1976 20hp motor according to the model number (sound right to me). Now what my question is that it has a 25hp hood on it and also if you look up the model no. of Johnson motors, Johnson did not make a 20hp motor in 1976. The motor is bigger in size than say my dad's 20hp late 60's johnson motor. It also has a starter on it. What do you guys think it is?

It's tough to say without seeing motor. They could have changed cowl (lost original and found only one for 25hp) or they could have replaced transom/steering mount (old one did break/worn/etc) leaving serial and model # of 25hp.
Good thing is....if it runs fine and does the job, just use it
Bad thing is...if you need parts you have to take it to a dealer to show.

According to my Johnson model year guide Johnson did make a 20 hp in 1976. Any dealer should be able to find you what you need. It is likely that someone replaced the hood. You can also look on the block and there should be a quarter sized metel plug with the model or serial number on it and see if it matches.

Where is it located on the block as I looked around and couldn't find nothing else early that looked like a serial #. Is it under the fly wheel? Oh yeah I do need a part though as it was my grandfathers and the prop is pretty much tore up. (caught every weed possible while duck hunting)

Thanks for the responses guy's

If it has one it is on the block and fairly visible. It may not have one. If you need any new parts feel free to email me at kjgmh@hotmail.com

Looking at the plug on the block shows that it is a 25hp as I thought it was. Thanks for the info guys. It solves another mystery.
