      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 .

40 Horse Johnson

Recommended Posts

I just bought a new /used Lund with a 40 Johnson 1993. It has what appears to be an early oil injection system( no more pre-mixing) I asked the seller at the time about any low oil warning lamp or a auto shut off.There is none! Now we all can be a little forgetfull at times but this could be an expensive mistake! Are there any retro units that could be installed to prevent this from happening? T-290

I once owned an '88 Johnson 40hp and that was a pre-mix model. It turns out that I once had an incident where a buddy and I forgot to add oil to the gas on our spare tank and when we hooked up the spare tank and went full bore across the lake, the motor recognized the problem, and automatically shut off! They have sensors in the motor that detects oil and prevents a blow out. I never had any warning signals or anything...just a plain jane motor.
I am sure yours has these sensors.

Buddy of mine has a 40hp Johnson not for sure the year either a 90 or 93. It is oil injected, oil pump quit working motor didnt detect problem. Now he needs new head and pistons. I would be careful with the oil injected motor. Buddy was told if he fixes motor he should just mix oil in the gas. This way you know for sure its getting oil.
Just my two cents worth......
