      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 .

Mercury 9.8 problems

Recommended Posts

I have a merc 9.8 that doesnt appear to be spitting much water and it also wont let me fill the lower end unit till the fluid comes out the top screw hole. Any suggestions on what it could be? Or know of a good mechanic around the Chisago Forest Lake area.

Thanks in advance.-Dan

Frankies would probably be a good bet for you LL. It sounds like you might have an issue with the impeller. I would hold off on running it until you have it looked at.

Sounds like you need a new impeller or the "pee hole" is clogged. As far as the filling problem, The top plug on those is the smaller straight blade screw that goes in at an angle just above the anti-cav plate. Is that the one you are removing to vent?

The other thing you could look at, I did this before, is take teh hose off from the motor to the pea hole and blow some air through it. I had some sand get in and kep the water from flowing properly. Took the hose off and blew through it and it works fine.

But if you do have some problems you can't fix, Frankies is top notch.

Dimmerman Bros. in Forest Lake has always been good to me. They sell parts and helped me figure out how to repair the impeller myself.
