      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 .

I have a 1996 50 h.p. Johnson 3 cylinder. It is oil injected.

My question is: Is the oil tank suppose to be pressurized?

The reason I ask is, over storage period, the tank builds enough pressure to purge straight oil into the carbs, and then in the spring I have to drain the carbs in order for the motor to run.

Is it a pressurized system? And if so, what would happen if the tank wasn't pressurized (i.e. loose cap)?

thanks in advance,

Jeff (PCG)

No I didn't. I treated the gasonline with Sea foam and then ran the motor.

Yes, excellent water discharge.

I have a 25HP Yamaha, 1994.
It has a rubber cap on the oil tank, non pressurized.
I don't drain the carbs either, just run sea-foam into the gas.
It smokes a little when you start it, other than that it runs good.

The motor stalls, like the ignition was killed, at 2/3 throttle or more.....the first 3 times it started without any hesitation and ran fine....Today it stalled and the SLOW system was activated upon restart.

?????

My brother used to have a '93 40 hp Johnson that would kill the same way. It would be running fine, then it would periodically kill on him when the motor was running pretty much wide open. He had to have the engine totally rebuilt because for some reason, the motor wasn't getting oil. I don't know how your oil reservior is set up. But his had a pressure bulb on it just like the gas tank. I can't remember the reason why the oil wasn't getting through on his. Hopefully this isn't your problem, or it'll be a pretty costly repair.

Just an idea: Is the gas line secure at both ends? Same type of thing happened with my auger this winter and the gas line was not fully secure and was leaking.
Good luck.

A good bud of mine has a 94 60 Johnson, for these exact reasons he disconnected the vro and mixes gas now. I know, a pain with onboard tank, but he allways knows there is oil.

However, now he has a simalar problem, idles fine, but get it up on plane and the thing dies. he talked to a mech and was told either the impeller is shot or the high temp warning doo hicky is shot. he knows the impeller is ok (1 yr old), so hes trying the latter. FYI

Yeah,
Could be the high temp warning sensor is bad....or the impeller, even though I have good water discharge...although when it did it the first 3 times, why didn't the SLOW system kick in? So many questions.

I know it is getting oil at low speeds, because it smokes enough.. I can't vouch for high speeds...although there isn't suppose to be anything that shuts down the motor like that. But who knows...Nothing is fact when dealing with electronics, that's for sure.

I have an oil injected '94 40hp Johnson. It has the alarm that goes off if the engine isn't recieving oil. I just got this engine with a pontoon boat last year. I thought about getting rid of the inject and mixing in the oil with the gas. Is it common that the oil inject fails? Are there any problems associated with disconnecting the injection system? Thanks

After I bought my boat/engine w/vro and had the motor fail. I researched this quite a bit. I found that for the most part the vro is actually quite reliable, but....If your not always checking for oil comsumption or get lazy on the maintenance, you could be in big trouble. This way i KNOW I am getting oil. Some people though may also forget to mix their oil (this has never happened to anyone right?). Then the disconnect is worthless. I think it is a personal preference. But I can't say I would like anyone to have to go through having to rebuild their engine like I had to, knowing it could have been prevented pretty easily.
Oh, and also I have learned that the latest pumps/injection systems made are more reliable then the first generation. It may be worth upgrading.

    • I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though. 
    • I didn't figure anyone at cabelas would be any help. I have scoured the gun and haven't ever been able to find any markings of any kind. I forgot to mention in the previous post that it's a 16 gauge.  If nothing else, it'll look cool hanging over my basement bar. 
    • Ha I remember showing ya a thing or 2!!! Not sure where your son got his fishin prowess from though! Yea well!! oh I changed my poopy pants!
    • I can't see the pics?
    • You might be better off trying to do some research on your own on the old shotgun. I think it would be a waste of time taking it to Cabela's since most of the folks  who work there now think  any gun made before 1970 is an antique. The gun surely is made in Europe and might have originated in one of the English or Belgian or even German "guild" shops, little outfits that cranked out inexpensive guns that did not even bear maker's names since they were made by a "bunch" of guys. Your best bet would be to trace or photograph the proof marks and go from there.  That is,  I'm assuming it has proof marks :).
    • For an exciting adventure in shooting grab an old "trapdoor" Springfield and rattle off a few rounds of 45-70 or 45-90.  If you're of skinny build and little weight it'll give you a THUMP you'll remember!   Perfect deer cartridge for MN though since that big ol' bullet will go churning through the brush like a D-8 Cat until it hit's it's target. Have been around the old '94 30-30 since way back when and while it is handy it is not that accurate and lacks the knock-down power of many, many of today's rounds. But if you just have to have one as I always say, it''s your money. Keep in mind you can buy the .35 Remington in a pump action,   which a lot of MN duck hunters find easy to use come deer season.
    • I have an old Damascus barreled shotgun that was passed on to me by my grandpa. The story I have always heard and been told is that it was brought over from Denmark by my great grandfather in 1915. It has no markings indicating where it was made or anything else that I could use to figure out some history on the gun. It is a pin fire and has a stag carved into the underside of the stock. Anyone have any ideas on where I could find any info on this? I had thought about bringing it to Cabelas and see if they knew anything about it. I'm not concerned about the value. I'd just like to know a little more about it or even get pointed in the right direction. 
    • I like the .30-.30 because of availability and affordability of the ammo but I think the .35 Remington may be a better overall round. I don't know anything about the .45-70 Gov. though.
    • I wouldn't mind having a lever action 30-30 just because everyone should have one. I'd bet a big percentage of us carried one our first time out deer hunting. My grandpa had a Marlin in either .44 or .357 that I wish I'd have gotten. I've also thought about a 45-70. 
    • This is an intriguing round for sure. Ballistics and long range performance is supposed to be good. Ammo seems priced reasonably.  A big plus is that you can get it in an AR-15 and with a 90 grain bullet I wouldn't be afraid to use it on deer sized animals. I've always liked the idea of having multiple uppers for my AR.
