      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 .

shifter

Recommended Posts

I recently replaced the impeller on my 1996 75hp Force outboard. Everything works great except shifting is much more difficult. Forwards and reverse are working fine, but the shifter is tough to push in to gear.

I did have to disconnect the shift rod to drop the lower unit. Is that what is making it tougher. can it be too tight or loose?

Any help would be great!

I did the same thing last summer and have the same problem, mine is an older 80s 15hp evinrude. Not sure what the problem is either.

Try removing the lower unit again. Then put the shifter in forward and the lower unit into forward then reassemble. I believe this motor has to be in forward for the gears to work correctly when you remove the lower unit.

When you have the lower unit dropped down pull up or push down on the shift rod and rotate the prop at the same time. I can't recall off hand which direction it is, but you should be able to verify it by rotating the prop and seeing which way it spins (and doesn't click). Clockwise is forward.
