      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 .

hard to start merc 30hp

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have a 91 30 hp merc tiller - maunal start. It starts easy when cold, but if I run it for 30+ minutes then shut it off for any length of time it is very difficult to start. It acts like it is flooded, but I don't think it is. I choke it and finally it will start after many pulls (not fun). It has had no more than 40 hours of use since new. Plugs are new. Fuel is fresh and mixed properly.

Any help would be appreciated

next time that happens, depending if it has the automatic gearshift integrated into the throttle.
take off the cover, on the left hand side of the carb (when facing it) there will be a lever that actuates the throttle plate, hold it open if you can while pulling the start (you might need two people) if it fires right away, it could be too rich or flooding. but if your choking it to start it that means it needs more fuel, to check that use a squirt bottle and give a small shot of fuel into the carb openimg.

I used to have a drag car that didnt have a choke so to get her started we always used the squirt bottle.

Either way youll probably have to stick a carb kit into it.
