      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 .

my old rudy conched out on me A couple weeks. I got no spark. So i assume the cdi module which is also known as alot of other things but I just call it the spark regulator. Any way do you guys think that it is a good idea to just go buy the part and put it in. What are some of the things that cause the module to go bad?

First to check: there is a fuse on the motor that will control that too. For the cdi box, they do go out, should be around 120? or so. Weak coils also draw more on the box, and they are not that much. If it were me, i would replace them too if i were keeping the motor for some time.

thanks for tyhe ideas guys but you're going to have to keep them coming. I had to go boatless for labor day weekend. I would hate to have to pay 75 bucks an hour just to find out that a wire went bad. A bad coil wouldn't effect all three pistons. Or would it? I'm still trying to find some kind of fuse.

Boy it sure is a good thing you did'nt take it to a dealer and have it looked at. They probably would have troubleshot in a half hour. Heck then they might have found a loose wire and charged a few bucks to fix it. Boy are you lucky! This way you did'nt have to trailer to the lake and spend valuable time fishing and relaxing. Think of the money you saved on gas and bait! No trolling, no casting, no fish to clean, some people have all the luck!!!!

Ok, if it's a Evinrude and you said it has 3 cylinders, that means is a 70hp or around that range from mid '70s and up (since it has powerpack), this helps a lot when asking for help (you know....they make a lot of 'rudes... wink.gif ).

Anyway, check 3 wires coming from powerpack to coils, there is a connector, is it plugged in ? I had a 70hp which was running like dump, problem was this plug was melted on back and shorting the 3 wires.
You can check with a manual how to test powerpack, before you buy it, they are not cheap. You can try to unplug big red plug from main harness, then use a jumper wire from + of battery cable to solenoid wire.
BEWARE this will start motor if you have spark, keep hands away from anything and you'll have to choke it to kill it, BEWARE.

Best way is to disconnect all spark plug wires and check for spark when you crank.
If you have spark there is a short somewhere on the kill switch (which grounds powerpack).

Hope this will give some help.

No, a bad coil will not affect all three cylinders.

Power Packs go bad suddenly on those motors, and can last anywhere from 1 year to 20 years, used often or not.

The pack will run you a pretty penny, since it is a triple. Check Napa Auto first before going to a Johnson/Rude dealer.

Jeeze...Look at all the help. These are all wonderful ideas and I appreciate all of it, But today I learned a simple lesson "Don't go jumping to conclusions and making the worst out of things." I checked everything on this motor with no prevail. I was even a little embarassed to ask you guys. I know my way around a set of pistons. Any way I went out and bought the cdi out of pure frustration. It was only 92 bucks (thats the cheapest Ive ever heard) I put that bugger in there and still had nothing. As I lay my head down on the side of the boat to rest my aching head,.....I find myself staring directly at the problem........THE FOCKING TETHER CORD AND CLIP WERE GONE. I don't know where the thing could be. But i went out and bought a six dollar tether cord and off she went. I still think my significant other rigged it, preventing me from fishing. You guys can all learn from my mistake.

    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
