      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 .

OK motorheads, time to shine!

My 71 Johnson 60 Triple has had an ongoing powerpak (amplifier) problem. This is it's second pack and I'm NOT putting in a new one. I've been told there's a simple solution involving a 12V auto coil with resistor/condensor to replace the original. Anyone got the scoop on this conversion?

Ouch!

It sounds like you have an underlying problem that is taking out the power pack.

Stray currents from a possible short somewhere or a lfunction of another electrical ignition system component are my thoughts.

Let me do some searching. I can't recall of the top of my head right now what the case is, but this has been an issue before.

As far as you're general coil replacement for the powerpack, I am not aware of any. This motor is a 71', so there is alot less funky "gizmo's" being ran off the pack.

I'll get back to ya'

UJ, the leads go direct to the points (nowhere else). I've checked for spikes in V's best I could but no results. Ya notice this motor runs the hottest plugs available? Strange set-up but when she's running right you can't beat her. I know for a fact the coil conversion exists. I just want to hear it from the horses mouth if you know what I mean.
