      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 .

Trying to troubleshoot Evinrude Big Twin Issue HELP!!!!!

Recommended Posts

My motor doesn't want to go anywhere when you get on it in forward or reverse and about a month ago test ran it on the river and never missed a beat, but the thing will move at trolling speeds all day long I'm completely flustered as to what this could be and earlier today between lakes I took the lower unit apart to see what could be the problem and din't see anthing wrong with that does anyone out there have a clue,or an educated guess as to what could be going on?

If it goes in gear and the prop spins, and as you say it will move at idle but not when throttle is increased, I would say you have spun the hub on the prop. The center hub has a rubber insert to absorb shocks, but when they let go, they require proffessional repair or replacement.

I also think its a spun prop,I bought a motor last year with a spun prop,I just bought a new prop,To have the spun one repaired was almost as much as new,Now I have 2 props but have'nt had the one repaired,Thinkin if I would need another its easier,quicker and only a few bucks more for new.

A spun prop would definitely be the first place to look to discover the source of your problem. But don't stop there! I once had a 25 HP Johnson that would act exactly the same way that your motor does. After trying many different search's, I finally discovered that the throttle linkage had come loose. Previously, my motor would start and run flawlessly, but would not go above a certain speed, in either forward or reverse. After re-connecting the linkage, I was good to go! I hope this helps. If you continue to have problem's, try emailing Surface Tension in the Duluth,BWCA Forum. He's my go-to outboard guru! Good luck!
