      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 .

Tecumseh 2HP auger engine Tune-Up

Recommended Posts

Has anyone "tuned-up" their Tecumseh 2HP auger engine before? Did you adjust the carburator, fiddle with the muffler, or what did you do?
I'm looking to "beef" mine up a little. Thanks!

I haven't fiddled too much with mine, but fresh gas and a new spark plug tend to make a big difference in performance.

Something else to watch on the Strikemasters...check the collar bolt on the auger periodically, as they tend to get a little bit loose over time.

My Dad ,though he can't drive anynore said "If it starts then why try to fix it?" And if it needs fixing? "Just remember anyone can take out their appendex but only a Dr. can do it right". Check your local dealer and you will find the best/honest deal. remeber 1 pull? Its good 2 Pulls? plug 3+ call the Doc.

don't touch it, those things are so **** finiky, save some time and frustration and bring it to a small engine guy that you think knows what is going on...........not somebody working out of an old barn. itll cost you maybe thirty dollars or so in labor and whatever for parts.

Why stop at a simple tune up. Do what I did and leave a good supply of gas in the tank, let unit sit in your garage during the summer so the heat can break down the gas, gum up your tank and carb. By going this route you not only get a nice tune up from your local small engine guy but can have him throw in a carb kit and maybe even a new fuel line to boot.
