      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 .

How the heck..........

Recommended Posts

I changed the oil in my Yammi 115 4-stroke last night. When I finished draining the oil, I noticed that there was almost 6.5 quarts in the bucket. The motor capacity is listed at 4.8 quarts......

Ok so they put too much in, right.......

Wrong...The oil smelled badly of gasoline.

How the hell did 2 quarts of gasoline get into the crankcase?????????

Motor runs fine.....so I can rule out bad ring or blown cylinder.

Any thoughts from the motorheads in the audience?????

Motor is a 2001 and is under warranty. I am dropping it off tomorrow to be looked at, but wanted to see if anyone else has had this happen and what was the prognosis?

A friend of mine has the same motor, he also had some gas odor in the oil, you could smell it on the dip stick, a mech. told him he may not be running high enough rpms often enough, or in other words use wot more often. we also noticed that if the motor is not perfectly level, it would show on the dip stick that there was either more oil in it or less, mabey it had too much put in??

Imagine that your Chevrolet Mech. told you on your 2001 Silverado that if you didn't run it at WOT frequently that straight gasoline would creep into the crankcase.

This is a horrible reason and explanation.
Obviously there is a problem with your motor.

Let us know what the dealer finds,

Motor is sitting at Pierz in Shakopee. I changed the oil myself and ran it on Friday....Didn't notice any odor after about an hour of operation.

The guy at Pierz just said keep an eye on it and bring it in if it happens again. Gee that makes me feel better!!

I'll post it if they find anything.

I have a 1987 dodge pickup that does the same thing. I change the oil in it,and about a week later there is gas in the oil.If I parked on a hill the gas would just pour in,kinda like a siphon hose. I finally found out that it was the carb causing this problem.
I assume you have a FI engine?? If so the choke could be sticking or not adjusted properly. That would cause more fuel than is being burned to enter your engine. Causing it to leak down into the engine.
It might be a good idea to unhook the fuel line near the engine,while trailering. You should not have to but it could save your engine.
Just my 2 cents worth

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.

    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
