      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 .

It sounds like a spun hub on the prop... take a paint marker, or white out, and draw a line across the hub of the prop - basically, from the outside of the prop hub to the inside, and then run it again. If the lines don't match up afterwards, that's the problem.

If that's not the case, it might be a lower unit problem...

Marine man this is really embarrasing I'm sorry I forgot to include the fact that I checked the lower unit over today and didnt see anything obvious and this is the reason I checked it I went to drain the oil the other night and the only thing that looked like the drain plug to me also just so happened to be the shift linkage screw, but didn,t know it at the time so after this happened made me start thinking about that night when the screw wouldn't go back in like it came out until I wiggled the shift linkage a little will all of this make a difference to your origanal answer?

If you have forward neutral and reverse at idle, it sounds like you reinstalled the cradle pin correctly.

No, this does not have a splined hub. It is a rubber mounted hub with a insert that is fixed to the propeller shaft with a drive pin.

I too would check the hub to see if it is spun.

When reinstalling the prop and hardware it goes in this order:

1. propeller

2. washer - This must be installed between prop and pin

3. drive pin - through insert and prop shaft

4. prop nut secured with cotter pin.

    • Well hopefully today is the last of the Fernando Rodney experiment. 
    • that is certainly a dream!  
    • Atta way, Cheetah!  Congrats!!!
    •   WTG Cheetah!  They still give you two tags each out there?  Still hunting, or coming home early?     Stick with it PFunk, once that hens slips away he'll come back lookin' for some plastic love.  
    • And on a day where i am kicking myself for not bringing the DSLR, why wouldn’t a nice bearded hen come by just outside the window...
    • Working on punching dad’s archery tag and had this guy hang up at 40 yards for a good half hour outside of his comfortable shooting range. Had 4 jakes on the decoys earlier trying to breed them but the tom stayed out at about 60 with a live hen. Fooling the big boys with the bow is proving to be a challenge. Wow is it fun and frustrating as hell at the same time. 
    • Brother and I doubled this morning in my shortest Black Hills public land hunt ever...   3 hours from time of leaving the car.      Parked the car and had turkeys gobbling on the public side of the road right where we planned to go.   Two gobblers dropped down into the field in front of us at first light and bred a hen right there.   They almost came in to us once the hen left them, but changed their mind and walked over the hill to the rest of the flock.  After a couple hours of cat and mouse we managed to get in front of them and after one close call with a blow down in the way had a second chance and were able to take both gobblers at the same time.   37yd shot for my brother, and 44yd shot for mine.   
    •   I see a pattern I hate to see from any player....Granlund in the last 2 seasons combined: April 2G/3A   Playoff Totals last 2 yrs combined 1G/4A    Those are terrible end of year stats for any player...I just think he is too small and plays even smaller...when the going gets tough he disappears..he probably is just worn out come late in the season and we need players who can step up when we need them most.
    • Can’t really say I’m disappointed in their performance. I was expecting a blowout sweep.   my dream scenario is, trade Wiggins and 1st round pick(s) to Spurs for Kawhi Leonard. Then offer LeBron James a blank check. Let him fill in the numbers.
