      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 .

Where is the block cracked? Does it leak water or oil, if it is a surface crack that doesn't involve a valve seat or the cylinder walls it can be easily repaired with J-B Weld. Yes I know i sound like Paul Harvey, If you clean the crack area throughly and slightly V the crack, mix the epoxy according to instructions You should have no trouble especially if you leave it "set" properly. If the crack is on a verticle surface mix up the epoxy and fill in the crack and trap the epoxy inside of a little duct tape to hold it still till the epoxy sets. I have repaired a lot of things and have found that good cleaning is very important, and not rushing the repair and trying to use the item before the epoxy is set.

Re: the cracked powerhead on your engine, if you end up having to replace it your best bet would be to go with a PMC powerhead. It will be about half the cost of a factory part and has as good if not better warranty. (12 or 24 mo. no fault, unlimited hours, no cost to you repair or replacement.) I have been in the marine ind for about 10 yrs. and have used many of them, I think their quality is actually better than OMC factory new! I beleive that only sell to dealers. You should be able to look them up on the net under PMC north america. They also sell complete rebuilt OBs, lower units, snowmobile, atv and pwc engines
