      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 .

Tilt&trim 1981 merc

I have just replaced my tilt amd trim motor and valve assembly. I have all the lines on correct and have filled the pump and run the pump "it works" motor goes up and down "but" when it is in the up position it will drop to full down in about an hour. I would like to know if their is a trick to fill and bleed the pump and lines everything seals tight and I have no leaks. I used 20w oil like it says to with out detergent. The motor is a 1981 merc 115 the pump has 4 lines under it with 2 cylinders to raise the motor. Pump is used and worked when it was taken off other motor.

Redfisher, check your pump, it should have a knob (small cylinder with grooves on it) on top, turn it all the way one way or the other, it's used to lower your motor if it gets stuck in Up position. If it doesn't work, bad news, you might need a rebuild kit for your cylinders, it's not tough if you have some mechanical experience.

The screw is a the way left which is in the closed position and none of the lines seem to be leaking cylinders look ok too. I might have to just replace the seals and see it that dose the trick. It will hold the motor up just above full down. I think it is messing with me now.

It might be seals inside cylinders, you can also try to push motor down when it's up, if it lowers, you have confirmation.

Funny, my pump says 10w30 motor oil on it. I asked to other people and they all have different tags, some 30w, some Auto Trans fluid....

I changed the trim/tilt in a newer Merc. and to bleed the lines all I had to do is lower and raise it about 20-30 times removing the fill cap after each cycle. This is what my manual said to do to bleed the air out. It said that if it lowers by itself you probably have air in the lines. Something to try before tearing it apart. Good Luck.
