      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 .

I took the screen off to hook up the ears last night so I can run the motor (hasn't been ran in 4 weeks) and noticed some lower gear oil under the screens. I checked the lower gear oil and put a hole tube of it in and it still didn't come out of the top hole. My questions are where could it be leaking from and if I keep my eye on it and keep it full for the summer (low funds$$$) will I be ok? I think the shop who winterized it didn't check it, they seemed a little shady. Also when I took the bottom screw out to put more oil in a litte came out milky brown then ran that good color green, there was no metal shavings on the bottom screw or in the oil so I think I caught something in time.

A couple of things:

1) You don't have to remove the screens to run it on the hose - it'll run just fine with them on (good thing you did this time though, huh?)

2) A very similar question & answers were on Gear Case Thread last week. Check that one out for the exlanation of how it happened.

3) If you keep your eye on it yes, I suppose it'll be ok.. but it's a bit of a chance with a 7 year old motor that you won't do further damage, costing more to repair it later. If you had some water in the lube it's entirely possible that it froze and pushed some seals out.

Ok, after I put new oil in it yesterday and ran it I let it sit over night and came home to check the oil. The oil is all milky color, I have the service manual but this is something I've never tried before and not sure what I would be getting myself into. The manual says if it's milky to replace the oil seal. This is not what I need at the moment and a total disappointment, I haven't had the boat for a year yet. Is it possible that I'm forcing water through the seal with the ears and it won't get in there when the pump is drawing it in?

I'd do a vacuum test to be sure, but it sounds like a re-seal is in order. If you are forcing water in, then the seals are shot and need to be replaced.

Here's a diagram, I think I'll need everything I circle. I figured I'll put in a new impeller since it will be all apart. Do I need to get #'s 15 & 16 also?

The parts are cheaper then I thought, looks like I can purchase them myself and save the big mark up and then spend the 3 hours labor on mechanic.

Let me know if I've missed anything.

Thanks Everyone

I guess I would still want to do a vacuum and pressure test. In your first post, you said you had oil leaking out. After you changed the lube and ran it, it sounds like water got in. It's quite possible you have 2 different problems.

On both the drive shaft and prop shaft, there are back to back seals. The outside seal keeps water out and the inside seal keeps oil in. Not to forget there are o rings on both the prop shaft bearing carrier and water pump base and a shift shaft seal as well.

My gut tells me your problem is with the drive shaft seals. You could replace them, do the tests and go from there.

The other parts you asked about are the drive shaft bearing (15) and the other (16) looks like a shim and no you wont need either. It was good on your part to include the impeller while doing all of this.

Hi. You won't need 28,but I would get 26,those darn keys always get locked in and you'll most likely have to chizel it out.The problem you're having is with the driveshaft seals,they tip in the housing and let water in and gearlube out. It's caused from inproper draining out outboard in fall,Yamaha has had a ton of complaints about this, as you'll notice when you go to put the seals in they will push in with your fingers,they need a steel cage around them.On another note,Yamaha gearcases will never pass a vacuum test,because they put both seals facing the same way,not back to back like the other companies.

Thats interesting Stump, have you ever tried to put them in back to back just to try it? Or do they use 2 double lipped seals?

    • Last nites work. 13 qts stewed tomatoes, 5 pints juice and 15 pints salsa!
    • I'll second that!! Gotta get some more cob cawn today myself....
    • From the  picture it is a male yellow headed blackbird; IMO there is even a faint white bar on the wings which may be what you describe as "the ring on its back" and the black smudge under and behind the eye.  I can't tell about the bill, but on a cowbird the bill is quite heavy;  not nearly so stout on the YH blackbird. Immature male yellow headed black birds are not so bright yellow as the adults, and there should definitely be some young of the year fledged by this time of the year.   If the picture is not accurate then we will need a better photo to do better than that.  IMO This picture does not show a brown headed cowbird.  Most cell phones will take a better picture and if it is tame enough please post another or even better a couple more.  The more different poses the better. Yellow headed blackbirds are almost invariably connected to swampy areas, especially those with cattail fringes.  They also tend to be around in groups, especially groups nesting in the same swamp not mixed in with red winged black birds.   The females of both species are quite drab, and quite distinct from those of the cowbirds.
    • I do live by a river and have lots of RWBB, maybe it will yellow up. That's a very distinct rusty brown ring on it's back though, I didn't see that in any of the YHBB pictures.
    • This furnace has 2 pipes. The larger pipe about 4" is the air intake is supported through ring #29. The smaller pipe inside the larger pipe about 2" is the furnace exhaust connected through the larger ring #30 and screwed to the raised portion of ring #29. My furnace a vintage Hydro Flame Convection with dual direct vent, needed no power, and used a pilot light. Had the identical 2 pipe direct vent as yours. I built 2 rings similar to your drawing. Had 2 major issues: 1. Anytime the wind exceeded 20 mph, my pilot light would blow out even when the furnace side of my house was parked to the leeward side due to wind eddies.  2. At the exhaust cap which was about 1 3/4" from the side of the house would scorch the side surface above the cap and the moisture from burning Propane (1/2 pt. per 10#) would freeze on and below the exhaust when temp went -10 or below. Second year I re-designed using the Pipe Cap photo 1 from Menards for under $10. I cut off the bottom half at the black line and cut a hole on the outside flat surface for the exhaust pipe. This was my fresh air intake. Also filled the inside of the cap with a disassembled expanded metal filter from a motor home stove top exhaust filter.  Photo 1   Secured it to my house and ran the exhaust pipe through the hole in the end. Attached the exhaust pipe to a 2" x 3" aluminum gutter down spout used as a chimney. Photos 2 and 3. Totally solved my issues. You may also find a similar cap to photo 1 for the exhaust instead of the pipe. Most of the caps I was able to find had a 4" connection point so you would need to modify to 2" or whatever size you exhaust pipe is. How ever you do it, cover all openings with a screen to keep the Mud-daubers out as they love burned propane orifice area to build there nest.  Photo 2 & 3
    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
    • I don't know about that but I will certainly not write him off, if he can be a steady vet I will be happy. 
    • That's a great chicken recipe duff, but that steak n corn get my vote!!
