      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 .

1992 Johnson 40hp issue?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1992 Johnson (tracker) 40hp motor. Its only happened twice but its not right. I will be running full throttle and unit will bog and die. I can fire engine right back up and it will run fine for a couple of hundred yards and do it will do it again. engine will fire right up and it will run the rest of the day. Its tuff to tell if I am losing spark or if its a fuel issue. The last time it happened to me I pump the in line fuel bulb and it seemed a bit soft. Is there anything common with this engine? Any help would be great!!!!!! thanks

You are on the right track with the primer bulb, but it also sounds like it could be a fuel tank vent issue. I wouldn't put much faith in it being a spark issue, because it would either not work ever or fail at warm temps and stay that way until the coil cools down. You could also have a stuck needle and seat assembly in the carb that loosens up after some fuel runs through. I would first check for proper venting of the fuel tank. If you still have an issue, I would replace the primer bulb (don't be cheap-get a good quality one such as genuine OMC) of the right size. From there it gets a little more technical, but doing a carb job isn't terribly difficult. Some other folks here might have some other simple things to check, but I would start with what I have mentioned and go from there.

Yea, It sounds like some type of fuel delivery problem as john mentioned.

Air leak in line somewhere

primerbulb

fuel pump

fuel filter

carburaters

John has a great suggestion for the hose. I've had some good results with after market brand parts, but I always buy OEM brand fuel hoses. Cheaper ones will get stiff sooner and/or won't have an exact fit on the fittings causing air leaks.

One thing to try while you are having this type of problem, is to push in the key. If the motor comes to life briefly, it's a fuel problem. The primer should still have enough gas in it to give it a little shot. If it does nothing, lean towards ignition.
